Not for constipation: Nine months is okay for yogurt for most babies. Yogurt is a wonderful food. It is rich in calcium, and the active cultures have many health benefits. Kids with a strong family history of milk-protein allergies (not just lactose intolerance) may want to wait, however. Ref: http://www.parents.com/baby/feeding/nutrition/introducing-yogurt/
