  • I think they say 6 months-ish...Those things get mushy PRETTY fast with the saliva in their mouth, so the small puffs really aren't a choking concern at all. they get a bit dissolvish...(is that a word?)

  • It tells you right on the package. They are very good for lil ones.

  • i think the key to the puffs is that the baby needs to have learned to mash lumpy stuff with their gums... which my daughter hasnt mastered at 9 months... she just gets it on her tounge and gags

  • Depends on your child... my child is almost 6months and is only on stage one food. She still doesn't always swallow it... so shes probably not ready for them. I'd ask your doctor if he/she thinks your baby is ready. I believe they base it off what they are doing... and I think for those its when your baby crawls thats generally a good time to try them.
