I think i heard somewhere that they prefer you to try your LO with runny egg before they have their MMR as the jab has a certain egg protein in it. If your LO is allergic, they just send for them to have their jab atthe hospital to be observed (as a precaution) instead of having it at the Drs.

Marley has a slight egg allergy - only runny egg though as he can eat cakes and yorkshire puds etc. It gives him a nettle sting looking rash around his mouth which he itches but after some pirotin, it goes down after about an hour. No swelling or anything like that - which is classed as a severe allergy and therefore wouldnt be able to eat ANY kind of egg products. Thankfully its mild and he will grow out of it *fingers crossed*

Has your LO had his MMR yet hun? If not, try him with some, just a little bit and see what happens. I bet he will be fine

I bet he will be fine then hun. Its usually the white part of the egg that causes the allergies anyway, so if he has already tried eggs before and not had a reaction, then runny eggs should be fine. Just buy the eggs that are Lion Stamped against salmeonna hunni.

I LOVE eggs and soldiers!

I was advised by my baby's Dr hunni, but this was only because my LO had eczema when he was very young and asthma so they thought it could be more likely him having a reaction to egg (which he did, but only very mild). This doesn't stop your LO from having the MMR though.

I think if you otherwise have a child who has no known allergys, skin problems etc, then you need not to worry about it But some (not all) Drs do ask if your child has tried egg before the MMR (they are offered the jab regardless let me add). It must just depend on your Dr and babys medical history

But i found these hun if they help:-
