When is it safe to start kids on cheerios.... and little snacky finger foods like that?? my daughter is 6 months old on thursday and has two teeth, and chews her cereal even though there is nothing to chew on.....
Well Connor is 7 1/2 months and I haven't braved the cherrios yet, but he is just now getting his seciond tooth. I do give him the fruit puffs and graham crackers. He really likes both of them. I am just afraid that he is going to choke on the cherrios.

I think if you have done puffs or something like that and she chews those you might try cheerios. I am nervous about those too because I dont think they dissolve as easily as the puffs do and Dylan will still gag himself on the puffs sometimes. ALthough we still dont have any teeth over here!!
I'm not 100% sure. My first DS Caleb had Cheerios for the first time when he was 8 months old. He didn't cut his first tooth until he was 7 months old though. I know those biter biscuits are recommended for young babies that don't even have teeth yet.

Preston only had 1 tooth (now his 2nd one has broke through the skin) and when we gave him the biter biscuts (to help with teething) he bit a chunk off!!!! We still use them, if you do plan on using those. PLEASE watch your baby when he/she eats it. I thought mine was going to choke on it. I saw a piece missing from it and found it stuck to the roof of his mouth. Let the baby get one side soggy, then flip it over and when that side gets soggy throw it away. All I know is it freaked me out when a nickle size piece was GONE from the cookie. Just so you know.
