My son is almost 11 months old and we have been giving him stage 2 foods for about 4 months now. He will only eat carrots, sweet potatoes, applesauce and pears. Everything else he gags and throws up. We tried giving him table foods like mashed potatoes and different kinds of sauces and stuff and he gags and throws up anything like that too. We also tried a few different kinds of stage 3 foods and he did the same thing with all the kinds we tried. The only thing we can get him to eat is ice cream and melted cheese. We also gave him a small bit of those little yogurt puff things that are suppose to melt and he gagged so bad I thought he was going to die it was horrible! Should I just wait it out and keep trying until he can finally swallow the stuff or should I take him to the doctor?

I would wait. If you keep pushing he may not want to try any new foods later on.

Before 12 months food is mainly for taste, not for nutrition.
