How many teeth does your little one have?

Mine has only the front 6. Does your little one eat adult food and are you still concerned about choking hazards when it comes to them eating adult food?

With my son only having the six teeth he does alright now and doesn't gag/choke much anymore, of course I still worry about giving him certain meats or hard cookies etc.

He has a tendency to put too much in his mouth at a time, and it freaks me out every time he gags or stuffs his mouth too full.

Anyone else have this prob/worry?

my baby girl the 8 front and 2 molars, one top left and 1 bottom right. she eats the same food i eat and even tolerates peanut butter. with cookies i started with club crackers and not many meats. she only just started eating lunch meat. and she ate fish last night. for a long time i still chewed all her meat up for her and let her do the vegies on her own

Ilana has 12 teeth. 8 in the front and then the 4 molars in the back. She's doing good with chewing her food thankfully! She loves her fruits and veggies but refuses to touch meat of any kind or texture. She drinks her milk good and does like cheese so she's getting protien. Its bizzare because when I was pregnate with her I craved meat more than anything... i'm normally more of a fruits and veggie girl myself, so it was so strange, and now she won't touch it! Maybe she overdosed in the womb! LOL!

My little guy has 8 teeth. No molars yet, and he eats everything we eat, with exception of spicy stuff. Even tough meats like steak. We just make sure to give him small workable portions and we've had no problems with choking *knockonwood*

Just watch your little one and teach them not to stuff their cheeks full.

Hi Alisha,

My son only has six tooth too. Eating is very difficult, he refuses to eat anything mashed up and he just doesn't seem to have enough teeth to eat adult food. He doesn't gag or choke as he eats very little.... He is up a lot at night as he is hungry then and still wants bottles. I guess all we can do is wait for some molars! Good luck, I hope it won't be long now!

My daughter has 10 teeth now, she can pretty much eat any adult food we are having, though she is dairy/gluten and citrus free so that limits things a bit. But she hasn't had problems with any food!
