So my 8 month old still doenst have teeth. My sister recommend giving him teething bisquits since he wants to chew on everything else. I had feared that once the bisquits became soft , chunks would break off and he would choke. She assured me that this doenst happen...the bisquites merely dissolve. I treid it and my fear came true...he sucked on the biquit for about 2 minutes before a chunk broke off and he began gagging/coughing..I fished the peice out of his mouth and that was the end of that.
When should I begin to give him such things?
He eats pureed food and loves it. I tried to give him cheerios that had been soaked in milk to soften them but they still seemd to be a choking hazzard to him.
He sits up fine but still doesnt crawl. He wants to use his hands when taking a bottle and always grabs for the spoon when eating. He has just stated to use a sippy cup too.
Any advice on this?
Also, I'm not sure how much to give him as far as pureed food.
He still has his milk on schedule ..every 3-4 hours. Should I give him solids at this time too?
