would you let your baby eat two hot dogs? i thought you couldnt even give your baby hot dogs till they were older. my sister in law let her son 10months eat two in one sitting. that doesnt seem ok....

  • Okay first off hotdogs are a choking hazard because they swell when lodged in the throat making them impossible to unlodge. There is a reason for it. Second hot dogs are all the lips,balls,and intestines of the animals that they butcher for other meats. Why do you think they are so cheap! BTW I think I could think of several easy highly nutritious things to feed my baby.I think feeding a baby hotdogs trashy personally. Why don't we feed them some beef jerky,some ho ho's and doritos in little pieces too!

  • Wow. No, I wouldn't allow it. It's a major choking hazard. I am very, very heistant about giving my 15-month old child diced hotdog without skin. But two whole hot dogs at 10 months old?

  • I gave my baby hotdogs when she was younger. But I peeled off the skin and I cut it up very small.

  • Wow...that's scary! Hot dogs content a lot of sodiums and it's not good for baby's body not even talking about chocking hazards.

  • Wow. If that is all you have to complain about, then things are going pretty well at her house.

    My kids had hot dogs that early, just cut the damn things up. (peeling the skin off? well, I guess it depends on what kind you get)
