  • My son was FF so he got them at about 7 months. he had been on solids since 4 months old and had some teeth. My DD was EBF so she didn't get one until closer to 10 months. She didn't start solids until 6.5 months old.

  • Yesterday lol. She's almost 9 months but she's been eating little animal cracker cookies for about a month now.

  • After a year. No need to give them unnecessary sweets.

  • Thanks ladies. I was just talking to my friend the other day and she asked if we had fed our 4-1/2month old graham crackers yet. I told her no and she acted all shocked and said that she had started at 4months. I agree jus1jess, we did not start giving our 3-yr old juice until after one year and everyone thought we were crazy.

  • I hope you are talking about the ones without the sugar all over them. If So, I'd say 10 months.

  • My son just started eating them and he's 13 months - trying to keep as much refined sugar out of his diet as possible!

  • Ummm...around 8 months old I think? Don't remember for sure. WIC told me they were a good snack (as long as they weren't the honey ones) because they're a whole grain. Found out the hard way when one of them was older (almost 2, give or take) that too many of them cause major nasty diaper issues.
