Not good for babies?
It it just an allergen?




My mom just asked me, I feel like I read another reason before too, but I'm too lazy to Google it at the moment.

sometimes honey can carry a bacteria that causes botulism. It can make anyone sick, but babies usually have a harder time fighting off the infection.




hope that helps!

THATS it!! LOL I couldnt think of it. It's fatal for any child under 1. It has something to do with digestion.

It's not automatically fatal for kids under 1 to eat honey.

No botulism is fatal not the honey, its if they get it they don't have the same ability to fight it off.

Exactly. The way you worded it it seemed like you were saying that anytime a baby under 1 has honey, they die

Oh sorry.. When I posted first I couldnt think of the disease I just knew it had to do with digestion. Then I saw her type it so I just said this, dont think I read the rest of what she wrote.
