  • It was probably around 10 months. They started table foods at 9 months. I think it was plain sugar cookie with my oldest and chocolate chip with my youngest.

  • whenever you feel she is ready!? My daughter started jar food around 6 months and quickly moved to real food around 9 months. We gave her her first cookie shortly before her first birthday. She likes the dark chocolate chip kashi cookies that I buy. You know your daughter, so you will know when she is ready.

  • at 3 months we started the teething biscuits which are somewhat like cookies lol but first real cookie was a chocolate chip cookie at 7 months (she had teeth by 3 months ok) and with baby number two it was after 1 yr but she had/has many allergies.

  • I never realized it til now, but all 3 of my girls had their first cookie from their aunt (who had 5 kids of her own) - a peanut butter cookie, at about 9 months. I know DS had his first before a year but I don't remember what kind.

  • You could do the baby gerber snack cookies for now, I think that would be good for her age for now..
