  • I'd rather give my baby a piece of tender chicken then those teething biscuits. If your son is doing alright with them I don't see harm in giving him chicken. The teething biscuits can cause choking more so then a tiny piece of chicken. Just cook the chicken so it's very tender and juicy.

  • my dauther is 6 mths shes eating gerber puffs and we do give her chicken already and she does great with it ofcourse i had to take infant cpr and so did the rest of the family if you dint take it i dont let you babysit or feed my hild but i think the fact that i know i cnahelp her incase she does choke helps alot and if you dont star teaching them that they must chew they will have trouble with food later on my cousins baby is 2 and cant eat big pices of food because he chokes so i just sugest major supervision!!

  • He is 12 months old? Give him the chicken. My son was doing all he could to eat a drumstick from Popeyes by that time. He's loved Popeyes ever since. I did the same thing with my nephew. Something about them holding it themselves...loved it.

  • you could boil the chicken.. making it really soft. :)

    I always make really tender/juicey chicken so it was never an issue. I cut it into tiny bites, about the size of the gerber puffs when my daughter was that age. She loved it!
