Good morning ladies.
Anyone else have issues getting LO to try solids / table food? I have been trying for a month (DS is 8 months now) and he is having such a hard time with anything slightly chunky.
Mashed potato's, mashed avocado, stage 3 jar foods with soft chunks of anything in it, he gags, chokes and throws everything up. It's really scary and I am just afraid to try anything anymore. I tried 2 little pieces of rice last night and he totally gagged and then threw up everywhere. I can't imagine he really has this much trouble with solids still? Is it just a sensitive gag reflex possibly?
Up until recently he was constantly throwing up his formula but the doctors never seemed concerned since he was gaining weight and he was always a happy spitter, but he would go thru at least 5 to 6 kitchen towels a day, it was alot of spit up daily.
I am starting to wonder if there is something related to that stopping him from moving on to solids? Our next doc appt isn't until Jan. 3rd and he eats the pureed baby foods just fine so DH thinks we should just wait until then to talk to the doc and continue to feed him formula and purees until then.
I just thought I would hop on and see if any of you had dealt with this or what your thoughts were? TIA!
