The answer is NO. I can’t believe Lin chewed a piece of carrot off, it’s the size of a thumb nail. And he was gagging, spitting up milk. My aunt found there’s a big piece missing from the carrot and we feared it was his Lin’s mouth and sure it was. I forced him to gag again then the piece fell out. It was scary. He holds the carrot so well, and his four half out front teeth – top and bottom – are surprisingly powerful. So what every book says about a fat carrot is safe, is not true. Well, I am glad I took this video yesterday because there won’t be any more video of him chewing on a carrot!
