If you are thinking of traditional biscuit recipes, I want to point out that these hard in texture more like English biscuits or what we would call hard cookies. So these teething cookies are perfect for baby to rub on her gums. Keep in mind that you should only start to give your baby teething biscuits once solid foods have been introduced into their diet, typically around 6 months of age. Please consult with your child’s pediatrician before starting solids or introducing a teething biscuit for the first time. Never leave baby unattended with baby biscuits as they could present a choking hazard.
