Hopefully this won't shock you, but there are many Easter treats and goodies that don't belong in your baby's Easter basket. For example, Easter eggs. The USDA Food and Nutrition Service notes that you should wait to introduce egg whites or whole eggs until your baby is older than one-year, because introducing eggs too early may cause food allergies. Plastic, easy to break toys and many small and/or chewy candies also pose a choking risk for babies, so avoid those too. And please, no matter your child's age skip live Easter animals! The above said, if your baby is under one year-old, you can still create a fabulous Easter basket. Check out our favorite, handmade, safe and sweet Easter gifts for babies below.
