So I'm looking for some help here... my 11 month old son has never been able to tolerate anything above stage two purees. Every once in a while he'll gag a bit and keep down teeny tiny pieces of puffs, but most of the time he vomits horribly from one little bite. He is 100% breastfed - has refused bottles from about 3 weeks of age on - and spit up a LOT when he was little. Our pediatrician refused to put him on meds for reflux because he was gaining weight steadily, and I've read on other boards where some mother's had the same issue and felt that it was from untreated reflux. He won't self feed either - the only thing he'll do is chew on teething biscuits, but that only lasts a few minutes. His verbal skills seem a bit behind as well - he barely uses consonants - but all of his other developmental areas are fine. Has anyone been through this with their LO's? I'm beginning to feel very apprehensive and nervous about all of this.
This is about the time our pedi encouraged us to talk to Early Intervention. They can help with the speech and feeding issues. We went through a lot of the same things with Sam. He's still a bit sensitive to certain textures of food or what we call "surprises", like chunky peanut butter.
