Not good ...upto 1 year
No no.....don't give it before 1 yr....same thing happnd with me..my in-laws told me same...but truth is baby below 1 yr can't digest it. My baby had bad stomach due to honey and gas always troubles him. I made my own decisions and stopped giving him honey , ghutti etc.. breast feed is enough .my advise is don't experiment with little one.
Picked this from a site...
"Honey can contain spores of a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum, which can germinate in ababy's immature digestive system and cause infant botulism, a rare but potentially fatal illness."
Explain this to ur in laws in simple terms :)
Why doctors say that Honey is unsafe for babies
By Team Babygogo
Experts advise against giving honey (shahad) to a baby until the baby is one year old.
Traditionally, honey is believed to provide relief from teething pain or a cough. However, honey can contain a spore or spores of the bacterium, clostridium botulinum.
This can cause a serious but rare form of food poisoning known as botulism.
The symptoms of botulism appear around eight to 36 hours after consuming the contaminated honey, like..
3. lack of appetite
If you suspect your baby has botulism, seek medical help immediately. If your baby has a cough, speak to your doctor about how to treat it.
Honey can also harm your baby's teeth during teething.
Some mums also use honey to add more flavour to baby food. If your baby is less than one year old, consider flavouring baby food with fresh fruit juice, puréed fruit, mashed banana, sweet potato (shakarkandi) or dried fruit instead.

I would say totally depends on you. Our parents used to give us don't know why is it not given now a days. I gave it to my daughter as it is kids are vaccinated for all that bacteria stuff.
