    Default Farleys...?

    My dear old grannie bought DD a box of Farleys. She tells me all her kids had them and that theyre so good for them. I think the ones here are different than the UK variety and have lots of sugar. I had one, and it certainly did not melt in my mouth and was quite hard.
    can she have one of these once a week safetky or am I being paranoid? I dont want her to choke or develop a sweet tooth.

    I never gave them to my kids mainly because they make a HUGE mess. I think they are supposed to suck on them and they turn into goo. I am not sure about the sugar content, but you could look on the box.

    yes my MIL gave us a box too... I much prefer the mum mums or puffs. they are super messy but ds seems to like them they don't break apart rather than melt or mush

    We also buy mum mums or puffs...and I would actually break the puffs up into miniscule pieces but I'm a bit of a sideshow when it comes to choking.

    I agree, that's a crazy amount of sugar for a baby! I'm nervous about choking, too, and we just stick to mum-mums. Although he is off purées and onto small chunks of food now, but I can control the size.

    Farley's scare me. The baby's are supposed to suck them but even the goo is kind of thick and they can get a bunch in their mouth. Also, that's hordes of sugar for a baby.

    We opened them and they are not the same as the uk variety. I let her hold one to see what would happen and she went rabid on it. She wont be getting another again. The little pig would surely choke. Ill eat them myself as they arent half bad...

    I used to give them to DD3 she would never let me put her down they would keep her happy for a while yes messy but a bath fixed That. I found the mum mums would brake in half and get stuck in the roof of Her mouth and she would choke. She did like the net tethers and that wad always a healthy alternative.

    She's too little to want her to eat a HEALTHY snack she won't get messy in. O liked frozen celery at that age, helped his teething too.. other than that you could always do avocado or banana in a mesh feeder. I personally would stay away from any grains at her age, her system is just not ready.

    I bought those once and they are super messy but you can also mush it up for her?
    There are not a lot of "healthy" snacks for that age group, I stuck with the purees but sometimes gave in to the mum mums but even those I waited until around 9 months

    I didnt find those mesh feeders until my third baby but I think they are a stroke of genius. Fruit in one of those maybe? Eta: they are messy but if you get the bibs with sleeves it's not too bad.
