I was nervous at first how this recipe would work with so many steps and a crawling baby underfoot. But there was nothing to be worried about!
Once you get started this recipe flows right through, no problem. My daughter loves to chew on these & I don’t have to worry about all sorts of chemical ingredients. They are great for both of us!
