When Should You Give Teething Biscuits to Infants?

The development milestones of every baby are unique; some babies may reach them in time, while others may not. It has been reported that some babies begin teething as early as three months, whereas others may take a year. A baby’s teeth begin to erupt between the ages of 6 and 8 months.

Introducing teething biscuits immediately to a baby who is just starting to teeth is not recommended. When the baby is about 10 months old, and his jaw control has improved, he can chew on hard biscuits safely. To prevent your baby from choking, make sure he eats a biscuit under your supervision.

Benefits Of Teething Biscuits For Babies

As babies begin using teething biscuits, they bring numerous advantages to alleviate the teething sensation over any other alternative.

Your baby is more likely to indirectly receive certain substances that support his health by simply chewing on biscuits made from nutritious ingredients. You can’t do this with teething toys or any other options.

The taste of teething biscuits indicates that it is food to the child. Thus, your child will learn to eat food items and hold the bottle without your assistance by holding the biscuits properly. It is only when the gums are properly pressured that teething feels comfortable. Using teething biscuits ensures this safely and naturally benefits the child.

Ingredients of Teething Biscuits For 7 Month-Old

You can easily make teething biscuits for your 7-month-old baby with simple ingredients. 

Oats

Oats are a good source of minerals. The minerals magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, and zinc in oats help a baby’s growth. In these teething biscuits, I prefer to use rolled oats. 

Banna 

Bananas are nutrient-dense fruits full of vital nutrients. I prefer ripe mashed banana in my 7-month-old baby teething biscuits. It also gives some sweetness to the biscuits. 

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds include omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin K, calcium, vitamin B6, and zinc, which can support your baby’s nervous development. 

Olive Oil 

In olive oil, omega-3 and omega-6 fats are similar to those found in breast milk, which help a baby’s brain, nerves, and stomach function and prevent constipation. For my teething biscuits, I prefer to use extra virgin olive oil.  

Egg

Eggs contain protein, fat, vitamins A, D, E, B12, choline, and iron. It plays a vital role in developing a baby’s brain. In this recipe, I prefer to use a small egg. 

How Have You Made Teething Biscuits For 7 Months?

Now, I will explain how to make teething biscuits for a 7-month-old baby. Follow this step-by-step process:

Step 1: Blend The Rolled Oats. 

First, blend the oats in a food processor to make rolled oat flour.

Step 2: Mixed The Wet Ingredients

Then, in a separate bowl, mix egg and olive oil. Mix until it becomes a foamy texture. 

Step 3: Make A Dough 

After that, add oats flour with the wet mixture and make a soft, moist dough. 

Step 4: Add Banana and chia Seeds

After making a soft dough, add 1 cup of ripe mashed banana and 1 teaspoon of chia seeds to make your biscuits softer and healthier. 

Step 5: Give A Shape

Shape the dough into 15 rectangle-shaped biscuits without sharp edges by dividing it into 15 balls. 

Step 6: Preheat Your oven 

Then Turn the oven on to 180C/356F and preheat it. Put parchment paper (baking sheet) on a baking tray.

Step 7: Bake it

After you place the biscuits on the baking sheet, bake them for 10 minutes until the edges are golden brown. 

Step 8: Cool and Serve

Before serving, allow the biscuits to cool to room temperature. It’s about 30-45 minutes. 

How Do You Serve Teething Biscuits To Your Baby?

 As they cool, the biscuits will continue to harden. For teething babies, I recommend freezing them for at least an hour. Thus, they can chew on them for a long time without breaking.

Chewing and gnawing on them will continue to soften and melt them. Whenever your baby breaks a large piece, stay close to them and remove it. I suggest microwaving the biscuits briefly on days when they are not teething to keep the biscuits nice and soft.

Spread on peanut butter, yogurt, or a fun dip for extra flavor and nutrition. You can serve them any time of the day, as they’re great finger food.

Teething Biscuits Variations And Substitutions

Here are some tips for substitutions and variations if you don’t have or don’t like the ingredients in these biscuits: 

  • If you want to avoid using rolled oats or oat flour, a great alternative is to use another grain that can be blended into flour, like ragi, whole wheat, or baby cereal.
  • You can use mashed apples, pear puree, or sweet potato for the fruit component of the recipe, depending on the season
  • If you do not want to use olive oil for your child, alternative fat sources exist, including avocado and coconut oil, which are regarded as the healthiest oils available. 
  • Add some vanilla extract (non-alcoholic) to the recipe for more flavor and ingredients. 
  • For the babies and me, it’s easiest to make these biscuits in a rectangular shape, but you can always make them in fun shapes if you want. Keep sharp edges to a minimum. 

How to Store Your Homemade Teething Biscuits?

You can store these teething biscuits at room temperature for about 3 days or in the fridge for about 7 days. If you need to store them longer than that, you can place them in silicone bags and freeze them for up to 3 months. 

To serve them to your baby, warm them to room temperature first. If your baby is teething, I highly recommend freezing them and serving them straight from the freezer. Alternatively, microwave until soft.
