    Mine are 3 and 4 wks. And I am obsessed. DB told me and its true. I dote on them endlessly poor things.

    I mixed some baby food peas with their crumbles. Just enough for a snack. By mixing it, i feel more confident that I won't imbalance their diet, as they are still mostly getting the crumbles with a coating of yummmy peas. and they're BABIES. awwww

    Did they love it? It's so much fun to see them eat things that they're crazy about.

    I give mine crumbles with a little yogurt mixed in. They don't sling the yogurt around making a mess. I also feel better knowing that their treats still gives them the other nutrients as well. I do this every other day and give them a mashed up boiled egg for extra protein on alternate days. Mine love both of these treats and are very funny to watch them with their treat games. Good Luck and i think i'll try the peas when they get a little older. Good Luck

    yeah, on second thought I probably am rushing things. Kept on eye on their poop, thinking peas might make them loose.

    what other treats are ok or suggested at 1 month? I have read some topics I searched here....but any new input is awesome.
