Hi moms :) my 7 month old looooves pureed food but anytime we try more textured things like mashed potatoes, soft smashed up vegetables, etc he gags ..I heard this is normal as they learn how to eat. Is there anything else I can try to make the transition slowly from pureed to more textured? He doesn't really care for the soft biscuits either. Also how often do you guys feed baby food and how much? Right now doing once a day about an hour after he has his milk and not sure if I just keep giving it to him until he turns his head, or do I give him a specific amount and leave it at that? Thx !!!

Kathryn--do not feed a 7 month old mashed veggies and food because that is a choking hazard at this age. Puree is the only way to go for now. They have not developed those muscles and so on to eat or to chew yet. All they do right now is use their tongues. Stick to purees. Ask the doc about how often and how much to feed.
