Ask your question
  • Is there an age limit on rusks? I gave them to my babies when they started teething, which I guess was around 4-5 months

  • I introduced risks when they showed signs of teething. They’re teething rusks after all

  • From Six months i believe

  • The ones I have, box says 6 months, I gave them to my son just before six months! :-)

  • As soon as they’re old enough to be able to hold it and get it to their mouth. You don’t have to wait til they’re teething as they are good to keep bub busy for a little while as well as encouraging hand to mouth co ordination

  • yeah it says 6 months. babies love chewing on these

  • My twins started on rusks at six months.

  • We gave the hard ‘teething’ rusks around 6-8 months and then gave the rice rusks (cracker like) from 10 months.

  • Food rusks? About 6 months we did

  • Do you mean the cold teething rings or the teething rusk ones that you purchase from to baby food area. ? The cool ones i would say anytime. But the other ones some say any time from 4 months but i would only use thoose on a baby that age under close supervision they can be a choking hazard if they break off when dropped.

  • pretty sure it’s six months and before that maybe use one of those teething toys they can be refridgerated
