Biscuits can help the baby with teething problems. With these recipes, you can easily make the cookies yourself, which is not only cheaper, but you know exactly what’s in it.
Chewing and biting is very important for relieving teething problems. The gum hurts where the tooth breaks through, therefore it gives the baby relief by exerting pressure on the spot by chewing. At the same time, it learns to eat solid food and gets important nutrients that support teething.
Toothy cookies crumble so that the baby can bite and chew small pieces. Therefore, they should not be given before the baby is six months old. If you are unsure if the baby is old enough for cookies and you can chew without swallowing then you should ask the pediatrician.
Eggs. Protein is an allergenic trigger. Therefore, many parents avoid the feeding of protein in the first year of life of the baby. Even cooked egg whites do not reduce the risk. Some recipes contain protein. Those who prefer to do without protein can instead use one of the following substitutes or choose the egg-free recipes.
half a crushed banana
a tablespoon of oil with a teaspoon of baking powder mixed
a tablespoon of yeast dissolved in a little lukewarm water
Sugar. Sugar is often necessary to get the right structure for the cookies. If you do not want to sugar your baby, you can use maple syrup instead. Honey should never be used as a sugar substitute for a baby under one year old. Honey can contain botulism pores that are heat resistant.
Wheat and gluten. As long as there are no cases of food allergies or gluten intolerance in the family, both can be introduced from six months.
Salt. Salt is needed to strengthen beaten egg whites and maintain their volume. In recipes with baking soda, the salt reacts with the baking powder and causes the dough to rise. Butter recipes can usually do without salt, as the salt contained in the butter has enough flavor.
Dairy products. Cow’s milk is not suitable for babies under one year. In small quantities for baking biscuits, you can use cow’s milk as long as there is no lactose intolerance in the family. To make sure, you can replace the cow’s milk with baby milk.
