My daughter is 5 months almost 6 months old and teething. Is it okay to give teething biscuits at this age? The docs office nurse said it was but I have read conflicting information.

I wouldn't let them eat but only half of it b/c of choking possibilities 'if' they don't have any teeth!

You can but only let the baby have about half of it... one does want to risk them getting chocked!

This totally helped me. Madison will be seven months in a little over a week and is teething like crazy. We have already started her on some “table food”, but mainly baby food. I completely forgot to ask her doctor about the teething biscuits at her six month appointment. Yayyee!! She can finally upgrade a little and enjoy the wonderful world of teething cookies.

My daughter is just over 5 months old and i've been giving teething rusks to her for a few weeks now. But i only give them to her when i can keep a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't break off any big chunks.

The box of Gerber Graduate Biter Biscuits says on the package "for children 10+ months" and "crawlers and up." I waited until my son was around 7 months old and able to crawl perfectly (with belly off the ground), and sitting without support, and he always did fine... just be cautious. They can bite off chunks that could be a huge choking hazard.

My doctor's office said the same thing. My son is around the same age, and I just started giving him some biter biscuits this weekend. I think it is okay. According to the information that I have read, as long as she can sit up, even with support, she should be okay. Hope this helps.
