So this is where Evan is...He won't eat things with texture, he likes things smooth. Slightly lumpy bananas are okay with him. Gnawing on bread is fine with him. He won't just pick up small things from his tray and eat them. So, to introduce textures I tried sticking bits of rice into something pureed, like applesauce. He would find the occasional chunk and gag or spit it out. My DH said that would be kind of funky to find a chunk in something otherwise smooth. So, maybe if the food is fairly the same consistancy throughout that would be okay with him? I gave him some thicker oatmeal/fruit from a jar today and yesterday. He did okay with it, took a couple of bites without gagging too much. The first time I did that, he only ate 1 bite. What the heck do you do? It is a bit tricky, because we are not incorporating any wheat, dairy, eggs or meat into his diet yet.

Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.

Im not exactly sure but Im guessing.. maybe you just have to keep trying to slowly introduce it into his diet. try what your DH said about making a lot of it the same consistancy. try making his cereal slightly thicker or lumpier everyday. Ask his doctor for other suggestions, Im sure they will have great ones.. sorry if I wasnt much help!
