Natural organic honey is not free of botulism spores. Also 8-9 months is not the same as one year. Each parent needs to decide what is right for their own child. My children did not get honey until after they were one on the advice of our doctors.

Mine didn't get any til after age 2. Honey is dangerous. It has lots of wonderful properties for older folks, it is a wonderful digestive aid, an antibiotic etc etc, but for babies it is very dangerous. Not worth taking a chance on IMO. Each parent has to do their own research and make their own decisions.
