I just recently checked into eating honey during pregnancy because I thought it was a forbidden food. It turns out there are no contraindications of even eating raw honey during pregnancy and there are even very few botulism cases tied to honey in infancy, with the median age being 3 mos. for the few known cases. If I remember correctly, there weren't any reported cases over 4 mos. of age. Reason cited is an immature gut.
Just to be safe, I would still stick to the recommended guideline of one year of age to feed babies any honey, which is apparently more than generous.
Who is feeding their 2-3 mo old honey anyway
