All of my children teethed on pickles! My parents used them for all of my brothers and sisters and I. A nurse told my parents to use them because of the coldness and the vinegar in them numbs the gums. We all usually use dills but I have found that sweet gerkins are equally effective!

Ummm.. Not if you sit with the child and monitor them it is not a choking hazard.

My oldest child used to love chewing on the really crunchy dill pickles.

They can be a choking hazard, I always supervised her closely when she ate anything for the first couple of years. I do not believe that just being in the same room is supervision enough when a child is learning to chew and swallow.
My theory was to turn the TV off, no reading, WATCH baby eat at all times. If a phone call or doorbell interupts babies snack or meal, remove the food and hand baby a tippy cup for a few minutes.

Bonus, The look on your child face the first time you stick that pickle in His/her mouth.

i believe that anyone thinking it would be a choking hazard should not only spell correctly but also remember to watch your kid
that was the winner of the dumass of the day award

To SICK OF STUPID M.D.: I love how you are quick to judge someone else on their spelling, when you can't even spell yourself! Dumass??? I think you mean DUMB ASS!!!

If you are concerned about choking hazard try dipping a wash cloth in the pickle juice and letting the baby chew on the wash cloth.
