    Teddy Bear shaped containers appeal more to toddlers than to infants. If the Honey was bottled in tit shaped containers though...that might be something to be concerned about.

    Honey is typically bottled in bear-shaped containers because other than bees (a bee-shaped container would probably turn people off the product, which manufacturers don't want to do), bears are the next thing most people associate with honey (Winney the Pooh helps with that).

    Also, as mentioned in another reply, nearly all store-bought honey containers have the warning on the bottle itself. I knew, but didn't know why until a couple posts in this thread.

    I remember someone once told me the same about feeding chocolate to dogs.

    When honestly I would never think to feed chocolate to a dog or like this feed honey to an infant in the first place.

    But hey at least I know.
    Great post by the way.

    I don't know why you shouldn't, but I probably wouldn't have done that regardless because it feels like they'd have trouble swallowing it.

    Generally when someone makes a claim, evidence is required to back it up. I heard providing evidence is hard lol.

    Not meaningless declarations easy to say after he regrets offering up evidence he’s a racist.

    It can have small amounts of botulinum in it, which can cause paralysis. Babies that young don't always have a high enough acidity in their stomachs to kill it off.

    the evidence is on the bottle but apparently you can't read. facts are not required to be proven. like at all. i'm sorry you can't be bothered to read the numerous posts in this thread proving that anyways but that's YOUR problem. what's next your going to say they are all photoshopped?

    The picture was posted after the post. You'd think that would be included in the OP but some people have an IQ equal to room temperature.

    how ironic you posted that comment. you would think that you having read the label would end it but nope here you still are whining about semantics that don't matter. i pity you. here go to your local store and look at a bottle of honey and READ THE LABEL. then come back and apologize for being so obtuse.

    Yes. I don't have kids, but most honey products I've seen have a "DO NOT FEED HONEY TO INFANTS UNDER 1 YEAR OF AGE" warning on the label.

    I'm a big fan of those honey sticks (basically closed straws where you bite one end off and suck the honey out), and they all have that warning.

    It can cause botulism in infants

    Infant botulism
    Health Alert
    Several babies in Texas have become ill with infant botulism after using honey pacifiers. Do not give honey or products made with it, including honey pacifiers, to children younger than 12 months. Find out moreexternal icon >

    Most infant botulism cases cannot be prevented because the bacteria that causes the disease is in soil and dust. The bacteria can be found inside homes on floors, carpet, and countertops—even after cleaning. For almost all children and adults who are healthy, ingesting botulism spores is not dangerous and will not cause botulism (it’s the toxin that is dangerous). For reasons we do not understand, some infants get botulism when the spores get into their digestive tracts, grow, and produce the toxin.

    Honey can contain the bacteria that causes infant botulism, so do not feed honey to children younger than 12 months. Honey is safe for people 1 year of age and older. Learn more about infant botulism from the Infant Botulism Treatment and Prevention Programexternal icon.

    Holy shit you are obtuse. Honey being damaging to children isn't common knowledge. OP posts something without any evidence and I'm just supposed to believe them? That is a new level of autism. You must believe everything you read on the internet. Sad.

    Why is this still being argued?

    I posted on post #12 that there is a warning on the label. Post #13 has a picture confirming what I posted. Post #17 you complained that the OP's claim wasn't sourced, that's fine but also moot as it was proven with post #13. Post #28 further confirms the claim.

    I get it, posting stuff like this should be sourced but the claim has since been confirmed, there is zero point in continuing to complain that the OP didn't source their claim anymore.

    I originally missed your post#12. But yeah OP should have it in the thread otherwise it looks bad.
