They are kinda like rice cakes but without the texture. More like a smooth cookie. And I would say....try it. Booga loved being able to hold it and gnaw on them by his self. They dissolve as they get wet.
They're like food, but not exactly food lol because your can't really eat them. They're design for babies. They don't break off or dissolve. Baby is almost 5 months old, people in my due group have given them to their babies but they're also already having solids, we haven't started solids yet.
I'm thinking they sound like mum mums which are basically rice cereal in cracker form. It's for teething babies and stuff. If the baby is able to eat rice cereal, i would feel comfortable giving them mum mums.
I mean ... i've given babies tastes of vanilla ice cream when they've been youngish (6 to 8 months), but I can't remember trying out anything with any sort of texture until after 6 months.
As long as he can sit up even in a high chair or somthing he should be fine my dd started solids at 6 months but i gave her rusk stix before that coz she started breaking teeth at 4... there designed so they wont choke but watch him anyway once they get half way i always took it off her.
