    Hi Anu..

    We can give biscuits to infants.. but not too many.. Usually i used to give to my both children in that age by crushing it to powder and then i used to add little water preferably luke warm water... this will almost taste like a cereal or cerelac.. and easy for them to eat..It will be like an evening snack.. sometimes they eat 3 4 biscuits if prepared like i said..
    U can give biscuit without mashing once he become 9 months or + old... They will have enough teeth by that time..
    till then u can try this way..

    :thumbsup

    anu. in my opinion, we have lot many more things to try before trying biscuits on a baby. have you started with fruits and veggies yet? if not, i would have fruits as the first snack. i let DS taste biscuits after having started close to 5-6 veggies and 2 fruits, that too for my own convenience since i had planned a trip. these days i use close to quarter of a biscuit every once in a while when i am busy with some quick work and DS is already hungry. at 6 months, he should be able to bite biscuits little by little under your supervision.

    DS loves biscuits the best too, for its texture i guess; he pounces on it even from a distance.

    Hi Anu,

    I agree with Asha. You can give the semi solids first in the respective times and then if need arises or you are too busy then you can give biscuits.

    We gave DD Marie biscuits in milk at about 7 months, but crushed biscuits we started by 6 months, just crush with the hand and give the baby. Also I did start with soup stick biscuits that is just for biting since DD was teething then and the soup stick would be more hygenic than nibbling on anything at all, of course we had the teethers but the biscuits do keep them busy and kids do like biscuits.
    Just make sure you do not give the whole biscuit, make small bits of the biscuits and give your LO until you are confident that your LO can eat by himself, else he may choke.

    Hi,

    I think it's safe to give just baby biscuits(biscuits exclusively for babies) until 10 months. There r a lot of teething bisuits available for them to just nibble and the ingredients used are safe for babies.
