My LO is a pro with purees and even things like Mum Mum's, mashed potatoes, pieces of banana, etc.
So I figured I would move up a stage in baby food to see. It has little pieces of potatoes and carrots in there. He did mostly fine, but a couple times he did gag/spit up. He still wanted more right after!
Is this a normal reaction to learning how to eat these little pieces, or is he maybe not ready? Like I said, he ended up eating it all and wanted more even after that little bit of gagging.
He does chew, so maybe it was just a gag reflex rather than not being able to handle it?
