Does anyone have any suggestions for foods for my 10-month old who has no teeth? He has ZERO teeth, but is willing to gum some things. As a first time mother, I guess i'm nervous about him choking on some foods. A friend suggested I can give me a piece ofa banana but I'm afaid he'll take off a chunk and not be able to "gum" it enough to swallow. Are toast & cheerios really okay at this age? Should I still be pureeing his baby foods or is mashing it enough?
