Baby Mum Mum Rice crackers

My son will be 7 months on the 19th and he has been given baby food ever since 5 months when he showed interest in it. He is in the process of teething and I was told to get him some baby biscuits as it would help. They seemed to dangerous (choking) to me so I got him the baby mum mum rice crackers since they melt in his mouth a little bit better. In your opinion (and please don't judge me as a mother) are these safe for my baby? He very much enjoys them and seems to be good at "gumming" them to death. Has anyone else used these?

  • Yes, I gave these to my daughter around that age and she loved them too!

  • They sound fine because they melt in the mouth. I gave my oldest the teething biscuits that are very hard. It broke off down his throat and he choked on them. Stay away from them!!

  • My son absolutely loves them! Biter biscuits are just way too messy, and the Mum mums are a great alternative!

  • Yes they melt pretty fast. I thought they melted to fast, this is why I think they are safe. Just makes sure you just watch him whenever you give him any snack until he has teeth and can handle on his own with no fear. I have tasted them and they remind me of rice cakes.

  • I think they are safe. My DD never had any problems with them. I think they are just for chewing on, I'm sure they have little or no nutritional value, but harmless!

  • My daughter ate them (and so did I sometimes lol). I think they are way better for a baby than the teething biscuits. I didn't give those to my daughter until she was around 1, and I still watched her very closely with them. I agree that they seem like more of a choking hazard than the Baby Mum Mums.
