I tried giving my son gerber puffs this morning and he gagged and threw up....Does this mean he is not ready for it? Or should I keep trying?

My daughter gaggs on things all the time... we realized that we had to control the amount that went in her mouth cause she would chipmunk her food till she couldnt swallow

Yep...same here. I gave my son them and the first one he gagged on because it was a new texture for him. Once it mushed up he loved it. I gave him another one and no gagging. I didn't give up after the first one (even when my hubby freaked out when he gagged)...just gave him another and another until there were no problems. Keep trying.

Same thing happened to me. I just waited a week and tried again. This time he choked a little, but got the hang of it. Now he eats them like a champ!!!

My son loves these things. I started giving them to him about 3 weeks ago. I was reading and they said not to give babies anything that is bigger than their pinky so I split the puffs in half and he ate that fine. Then about a week ago I started giving him the whole thing cause now he is chewing everything, even his cereal. My son gagged the first or second time I gave him a puff and that was because he pushed it back to the back of his mouth and didn't know what to do with it and started gagging. He does fine with them now. I would try again, but I always stick the puffs in the front of his mouth where his teeth are and not on his tongue. I hope this helps.
