    Default Dried fruit

    My SIL gave me some dried fruit--prunes, nectarines and pears. They are in large chunks and super tough (overdried) but I thought they might work as teethers for ds--yummy and nutritious. Is there some harm to this that I am not thinking of? I know the sugars are somewhat concentrated, but there is no added sugar. Whatcha all think?

    I would, of course, intro the new foods at the same rate as any new food.

    There is no way he is getting a chunk off. The fact that they are tough is what makes them seem so right for teething, ya know?

    I gave him one of the nectarines today--he loved it. Its not even wet but he's a complete mess! It was just the ticket for his cranky mood! I never would have thought of this had I not stumbled on these today!

    Cool!! I was picturing little bite-sized like you would buy in a bag at the store, but it sounds like they are too big to choke on.
