  • Yes, so long as you watch him to make sure he won't choke on any pieces he gets off.

  • Hmm...those thaw pretty quickly, I would just grab some teethers at the store with the liquid that you can freeze instead. Or toss a washcloth in the freezer. That way you don't have to worry about him choking on a chunk of the waffle.

  • You should get one of those mesh teethers. You can put frozen fuit in it for the child to suck on but none of the thawed pieces can be choked on.

  • I'd give one. By the time it is thawed, it's mush (as mentioned above) and besides...intro to table foods! He can start figuring out how to self feed!
