Food wise! Emmy can't have any grains until she's 1- 1 1/2 years old because of a family history of allergies. So our food sources are somewhat limited but she's been getting fruit and veggie purées; once or twice a day.
My main issue is that I have no idea how to transition from purées to "pieces" of stuff. I try some BLW but she never eats any of it! I've tried banana, avocado, steamed and fresh apple.. Everything just gets smushed. She gummed a fresh apple slice one time, managed to get a chunk off and choked on it! It was terrifying. Yesterday, I held a wedge of watermelon and let her gum it; same thing! She gummed off a small piece and choked. So now I'm nervous and just don't know. Is she not ready for chunks?
I see some of our babies, like Jett, and they are doing so great! Chunks of pancakes etc. we are SO far from that! And I feel stuck.
I read black beans and chickpea halves are good BLW foods but I'm terrified to give them to her. Any advice for a super paranoid mama??
