When can you give your baby those little puff snacks?

You know, the ones that dissolve in your mouth? I have a 7 month old and I was wondering if you think it's ok for him to have them. He can sit up unassisted.

  • They usually suggest when he can pick things up between his thumb and forefinger.

  • If its those gerber fruit and veggie puffs my daughter was about 8 months old and then she almost choked to death on one, it got stuck in her throat. she was sitting in a high chair not moving around either, after that i never gave those to her or my son.

  • I would never give them. They are a choking hazard, expensive, and I would rather give a baby real nutritious food.
