  • My daughter is 7.5 months old and I just started her with the gerber teething cookies. She has 5 teeth now, and some more coming in. She loves them! and they just melt, but it is very very messy.

  • My 7 month old twins adore their teething biscuits, and I have to keep them separated so that they don't steal each other's. They have been eager to try finger foods since they were just over 4 months, and since they were both pretty strong and could lift their heads and seemed stable, I have been allowing them a handheld snack each day.

    As for the teething biscuits, they are far healthier than most mushable finger foods, and seldom break off into chucks so they definitely get my thumbs up as long as the baby is holding his own head up and able to aim the biscuit to the right orifice at least 2 out of 10 times ;)

  • I started my son at six months. He had some teeth though. So I would say when your baby starts to get some teeth, then I would give them some.

  • i started giving my son teething cookies when he was about 5 months but since he didn't have any teeth at that time and i didn't want him to choke i would put the cookie into a feeder net and hand it to him. and he loves the cookie but most he loves his feeder net.
