My daughter is 10 months, 7 1/2 corrected. The doctor told me to start her with some finger food examples he gave were a hard pizza crust or bagel. I'm so nervous trying that because I did give her a baby cookie and she bit it and gag and ended up puking. I have tried stage three baby food as soon as she realizes there's chunks she pushes it out. she's afraid to eat it. The only thing I can get her to actually eat is the gerber puffs. Any suggestions. I just don't know how to start her eating foods. I've tried the pizza crust and as soon as it gets mushy in her mouth she's done with it. any suggestions on what youv'e done to get your child to eat would be greatly appreciated!
