This information comes from my own knowledge.
Thank you for your query.
No, date syrup should not be given to babies under 1 year of age. It is way too high in sugars, even though natural, to be good for them and is also quite high in iron and it is still to hard for your little on to process such an amount. However, I would advise the mother, if she is breasfeeding, to have some daily (just make sure the syrup is pure and without any additives) - it will make the milk more nutritious and give her the energy she needs now!
