loves finger foods so much he might choke!

cj loves feeding himself so much that he takes hand fulls and shoves every bit of it in his mouth. for the most part he does pretty good, but some foods (like bananas) can be eaten in that fashion! what can i do to slow down his "feasting" other than handing him one piece at a time?! Help...does anyone have this same problem, if so what do/did you do?

I have the same problem with my son! Especially with Goldfish crackers. He actually spit a mouthful into my hand once because he was gagging on them. Lovely. Aside from giving him one at a time, I find that if I spread them out a little bit he'll grab less or just one. If they're all in a pile, it's easier to grab a handful.

I have a one year old thyat is the same way and there isn't anything you can do but give him one at a time. I feel like I have tired as well.

good luck though. If you come across anything let me know
