I started rice cereal at 4 months old, and my now 7 1/2 month old has been eating purees for at least two months now. She's on stage 2. Yesterday, I tried a banana. I wasn't sure if I should give her a tiny slice, or mush it up and feed her with a spoon; however, I tried both, and she choked until her face turned bright red. It scared me to death. Today I tried a mashed avocado, and she choked so hard that it made her puke. I feel awful. Is she just still too little or is this normal? I really have no idea how to make the transition! I haven't found a lot of good information on the subject either. Please help! Thanks.
