Just curious what your baby was doing when you started them? my SIL's baby is a little over 6 months, can sit unassisted for a few mins but doesnt crawl. the package says babies who sit unassisted and can crawl. does a couple mins without falling count as being unassisted? she asked if i started dd on them... my dd is almost 6 months... doesnt crawl or sit unassisted.. so obviously i didnt but she looked at me like i had 4 heads when i tried telling her why we didnt... because shes not ready.
DD didn't start eating them until she had teeth, which was after 9 months. But it's fine before that, I didn't know they like completely disappear once in the mouth. They just turn to mush lol
It's a good way to teach them how to pick up things with their fingers and to feed themselves.
