Quoting Jolene:

I don't know what Gerber puffs your talking about because the Gerber Graduates Puffs that I have say "12 months + and accustomed to chewing solid food". They must be 2 different things. Either way if they dissolve well and the cookies don't break off in big chunks it should be ok at 6 months. I never used them though because I was always afaid of them breaking off in big pieces. I started with rice krispies, cherrios and freeze dried fruit snacks. Only you will know best what they are/aren't ready for!


 



On the side of the container (Graduates Finger Foods puffs) where there is pink writing at the top and blue on the bottom. The first blue bullet says "crawls on hands and knees (with tummy up and off the floor)"

The back of the puffs say that you can give them to your child if they can lift their tummys off the floor. My son started them at 6 months, he was crawling then. The cookies I would wait and use them for teething. I found that the biscuits are messy, but great for teething. The cookies were wonderful treats once my son had a few teeth, most of the cookie stayed in his mouth then.

You can start feeding them to her now. My son started eating Gerber puffs at 6 months. He had several teeth and was learning to chew. He loved gnawing on the cookies you mentioned. When he was chewing and mashing his food with his gums well enough I started giving him Cheerios.
