My daughter did the gagging thing until she vomited a couple of times too. Keep trying it though, they do get used to it. We actually broke the puffs in half so it was a little easier to learn how to take.

my LO started refusing his lunch a coupleof weeks ago and after a couple of days i gave up trying to feed him and gave him some finger food and he loved it and couldn't get enough, he now eats everything, puffs, cheese, every fruit you can think of but i agree balackberries need to be eaten in just a nappy!! And he eats veg sticks too, all this and only 8 months, he's a star, he doesn't have any teeth either so how he does it i'm clueless!! x

My son has eaten banana, avocado, bread, yogurt melts, and puffs. Ihave to be careful though because he has a sensitive gag reflex. They bites of food I give him are itty bitty, and I have to break the melts and puffs in smaller pieces. He sure loves it though! He picks up food pieces, now I wish he could figure out how to get it out of his hand and into his mouth!

my son LOVES mum-mums, he thinks they are just the best! he also likes cheese,steamed brocoli and carrot a lot. he eats the heinz little kids cereal fruit bars...they say for 1-3yr old but he does great with them they are really soft and just crumble in the mouth. oh and banannas , he literally ate a whole bannana one time he loooves it. i just break small peices off for him..its too slippery for him to hold.

I give my Bella little puffs by Gerber, she loves them. I also bought her the diced veggies and fruits since she only likes to feed her self lol! I also bought her the little weenies she liked those too. The little teething biscuits too, and I've been cutting up fresh fruit too and she likes it all.

My daughter Elyana( sept 6th) wants everything! She hardly ever eats her food anymore, she wants ours!! I give her all the finger food snacks from the graduates but mostly she eats what we are eating. I have so many jars of baby food that i will be dropping off for the babies less fortunate because she will not touch it at all! I started giving her finger foods at about 5 months, she has 5 teeth.

My son eats the gerber veggi puffs and cheerios. He also likes to chew on baby carrots and apple slices. And Kerri just remember all babies progress at there own speed if his choking on finger foods really worries you mention it to his Dr. at his next well baby check.

i work at a day care, and there is actually a baby who was born the same day as my son, 9-9-09.. she will eat anything. whether it be puffs, cheese sticks, pasta, avocado.. anything! then there is my son, who still chokes and gags on puffs. i am starting to think he will never eat real food. it is frustrating.. i know the thing we need to do is to keep trying. i just hate how he gags and he has even thrown up a few times from the gagging. WHAT DO I DO?! i am at a loss. i don't want him to keep choking :(

My son won't really even touch the jarred baby foods. He also rejected formula completely the few times we've tried giving it to him (strictly breast milk for him), and he would never take a bottle.
My sister and mom had a hell of a time trying to get him to drink anything especially out of a bottle. They got all sorts of different bottles to try but he wouldn't go for any of them. My sister found out that he liked the left over milk after eating honey kix off a spoon. She tried putting it in a bottle, but he wouldn't take it. I've put water in sippy cups though and he drinks out of them. So after his 1st birthday I'm switching him right over to cow's milk.

my boy, born sept 4th is eating alot of what we eat. just not the high sugar, sodium stuff. the latest he has tried is pieces of chicken and pork, he loves meat. I just cut everything little for him and he chews it pretty good. we still use his jarred baby food to add to things, like if we're having chicken with mashed potatoes and the side is not suitable for him, I will add some carrots or something to it and mash it all up together. he loves it. for a snack my favourite thing to give him is farley biscuits, its a cereal cookie, he loves them. good for teething and great for iron

My 8 month old is eating banana, avocado, bread, Cheerios, I know there's something else, but I can't think of it right now. I try to stick to soft things that he can grab but is less likely to choke on.

My son is not actually eating this stuff butI have given him sticks of apple, pear, yellow bell pepper, avocado in the mesh feeder, and a big banana piece. The sticks are all thickenough that he can't get chunks offaand we watch closely. He is not eating anything else though... just BF!

I give my daughter bits of very tender chicken, steamed carrotts, sweet potato, toast with hummus, tofu, puffs, yogurt melts, whole wheat pasta, scrambled egg whites, small pieces of cheese. Pretty much anything we eat that is healthy and doesnt have much sodium (she only has one kidney so Im avoiding sodium as much as possible)

I give my son puffs and yogurt melts. He makes sour faces with some stuff like the organic veggie puffs but eats them anyway.
And I give him little soft bits of food like the microwavable shells & cheese, and he LOVES steamed broccoli. Or I let him teeth on stuff like baby carrots, and chewwy bacon (which he also LOVES).

I have been giving my son rusks which he loves and the puffs as well. He loves the taste of the puffs but cannot figure out how to actually swallow them. He puts them in his mouth and they POP back out. Has your son had this issue
