hi can i give my 9 month old baby baby biltong to chew on and baby purity biscuits? Also is it ok to pour some cows milk into my daughters rooibos tea and sugar?

I am not too happy about the biltong at her age as there is always the possibility of choking.You do not need to add either milk or sugar to the rooibos.

hi there thanks for all the advice it is much appreciated! You can buy the baby biltong from most biltong shops - just ask for it when you go in!

Milk, Sugar is a no no for babies less than 12 months, Rooiboss tea has honey so please for teir health read instructions carefully and dont add sugar.

I buy cabbanosi but some babies are clever and as soon as they taste salt they no longer want baby stuff, mine started cabbanosi at 5 months she left her purities and never had eaten babys stuff so I give her baby porridge, they are a bit cotrolling but choose the best for their health and teeth.

where can i get baby biltong? i would love to get some for my little one.

i started baby buiscuits at 6 months. you have to always watch them though.

i dont encourage sugar in r/tea. it affects their teeth. rather use her formula in the tea. cows milk is only advised after a year.

please dont forget to mention where can i get the baby biltong from.

thank you
