I can't imagine Emily eating all these...she still choked/gagged on her stage 1 sweet potatoes 2 weeks ago and scared me. Are we doing something wrong? My friend's LO is only a month older and she is already letting her eat shredded meat and things off of her dinner plate and her LO loves it. Should I just move up to something more and maybe Emily just doesn't like stage 1 foods? I just think she would choke on finger food?[/b]
No don't try finger foods if she is gagging on stage 1's. I am not feeding my baby finger foods yet. I tried some last week and she gagged. I will try again in a few weeks.
Your not doing anything wrong she may just not be ready yet for solids. Take things slow don't move up stages until she isn't gagging at all anymore and is eating that stage well. Some babies take longer.
P.S. The reason I know this is because my special needs child has major issues with eating food and I did the wrong thing by trying to push him to eat more when he wasn't ready.
I just don't know why she's so behind, and it makes me feel bad especially when family members tell me I need to try harder!
