  • Ummm. Wow that's been a while. Think they were about 8 months old. If they could sit up i figured it was safe for them to eat. They dissolve in their mouths anyway. And we all know how much lil ones slobber! lol

  • 10 months for me. But I started all food a bit later than most. I was breastfeeding for 6 months, then pureed foods for awhile. If you're not sure about the puffs you can always give her/him half and not all. Its scary for a minute but once you realize how well they melt its not so bad. :)

  • About 6 months. My son loved them very much. I used to carry them around in his diaper bag to stores to help keep him happy (when needed ).

  • We started giving our daughter puffed brown rice (not genetically modified, pesticide laden or artificially sweetened) at around ten months; we added puffed kamut after she turned one.
