Teething Biscuits?

Loretta - posted on 08/24/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




My little dude was born on May 7th, and is doing the drooling and chewing on his hands. I've tried teething rings and other teething toys-he won't put them in his mouth. Is he too young for teething biscuits? What do you think or does anyone have any secrets?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

The Gerber brand biter biscuits say "recommended for children 10+ months" and only served to "seated, supervised children." They are in the "graduates" section for older kids that are crawling. So I wouldn't recommend them yet...

That being said, I think I did start giving these to my son when he was about 8-9 months old... but he was already walking.

You could also try giving him a wet wash cloth to suck/chew.

He is most likely not teething yet. He is at the age where this starts happening. Most babies do not start getting their teeth until about 6 months or later. You could try giving the biter biscuits, but make sure he doesn't get a chunk off of it. They are very messy. If he doesn't seem fussy or running a fever, he is not teething yet. Try giving him lots of toys to play with and different textures to feel. He is at the age of exploring.
