What is the difference between teething cookies & regular cookies?

Do they breakapart like regular cookies do? I have thought about making t-cookies but the thought of my daughter chewing on one and a part of one breaking off in her mouth and her choking on one worries me.

  • Teething cookies are VERY hard and take a long time to dissolve as opposed to cookies that crumble right away. Be aware however, that even teething cookies become chunks after they have been wet for a while and many times I had to take big pieces out of my kids mouths before they would choke on them.

  • they r a little different. you just have to watch them when they do though bc sometimes they get so soft and break.

  • I havent seen teething cookies, are you talking about teething biscuits? The ones I am thinking of dont break apart easily at all. They disolve as baby chews on them and are amess, but babies love them. Not sure how you would make them at home, but definitely not like real cookies.
