My little one is 7 months old and is having a terrible time with solids. She gags and chokes with almost every spoonful. I've been feeding her fortified cereals and homemade pureed peas. I finally bought some store bought peas which she seemed to do okay with. I would really prefer to make her food, as I did with my first, but she seems to need a real gradual transition to solids. Any advice to making homemade foods really smooth would be such a help. The other thing is that she won't open her mouth - we have to cajole and tease until she laughs and then slip it in. You can imagine how long it takes to eat that way.
