Tooth/Food question

Might be a dumb question...

So if Zeke gets teeth really late, can I do anything more than purees until then?  I mean he gags on everything that is not completely smooth.  Right now we have no sign of teeth whatsoever.  Still loving his gummy smile.  :)

    She gagged on stuff at first for a while, but after puffs and mum mums for a bit she got way better at chewing and

  • My LO has 3 teeth, but he doesn't use them for eating because they're all in front.  He's on purees still, but he's really good at gumming his Puffs where his molars will eventually be.  It was about a week and a half of gagging, but he got the

  • Milo doesn't have any teeth yet, either. He gums Puffs and Mum Mums without a problem. He's also gummed on celery. Those toothless gums are strong!

  • Okay, so I guess I just have to get over the gagging thing.  I just feel so bad.  I thought teeth would help some, but like you guys said the front teeth aren't really for eating.

  • Anna doesn't have any teeth and she eats pretty much everything we eat. She can even eat crackers and cookies.

  • J still has zero teeth, but she eats tiny pieces of fruit: mango, peach, and banana, as well as soft cooked carrots, potatoes, and some meats cut very small: sausage, ground beef, ground turkey...

    I also give her large pieces of some things to

  • We're still toothless here, but she does eat chunky food and food that we cut up small.  She can mash with her gums so we give her fish, chicken, cucumber slices, etc.
