So my DD has three meals a day and is slowly progressing to lumpy foods. At the moment her foods are partially blended and/or fork mashed. She is able to eat cooked rice, peas and anything that sized without a problem BUT if I give her finger foods she bites pieces off and either swollows them whole or keeps them in her mouth until her mouth is full. When her mouth is full and I can see she doesn't know what to do about it I have to use my finger to get them out. The bits that she swollows whole she ends up vomiting back up. I've tried toast with a small amount of butter (which she loved the taste of) and cooked carrot, apple, pumpkin. The pumpkin wasn't as much of an issue because she mostly just licked it off her hand rather than bite it.
She hasn't got any teeth yet. She also often chokes and gags on the bits she swollows as well as vomiting them back up.
So what can I do to help her learn to eat?
Also, I was wondering if you could give me some breakfast suggestions?
At the moment she mostly has weatbix with fruits mixed through and a small amount of cows milk, or some mixed fruit on it's own. What else can I give her so she gets a bit of variety? Seems a bit boring to me.
And lastly when is it ok to give her water in her sipper cup that hasn't been boiled first?
OOOHHH... INTERNET FIGHT. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? CAPS LOCK ME TOO DEATH?
