I told the Dr. about this and he said if it continued, than we would have to see a speech pathologist. He is fine with the stage 2 foods, but any kind of 'wet' food with texture (green beans, soft chunks of carrots, even the brown rice cereal that has a few more chunks than the multi-grain or oatmeal). He has his two center bottom teeth, and is working on his top two right now. He has no problems feeding himself the dry 'puffs'. He also seems to have somewhat of a 'behavior' (the Dr. thinks its a behavior, I'm supposed to take video and e-mail it to him) where he jerks his head and arches his back and straightens his body....even when he's still hungry. He'll usually have no problems taking more food after this fit. These two things seem to be completely separate issues. He had reflux, but this he has grown out of and cannot explain these problems because reflux happens hours after eating, not during. At times, with the textured foods, he gags so much that he'll throw up his entire dinner. And if I offer these foods BEFORE the rest of his dinner, he'll get upset and won't want to eat at all! Anyone else dealing with any of these issues?
