my son is 11months old and he loves his food but he still cannot seem to have anything lumpy,i have tried him on the 10+baby foods and he cannot seem to swallow nor chew and just spits it out no matter what,also even the 7-9+month baby jars also wont have any of them.He wont have peas or over vegetables i do myself so he is eating still like a young baby atm with his diet including all pureed stuff such as all the 6+months jars and all the custards,So i was wondering does anyone else's child do the same thing,is he just abit behind on his chewing and swallowing? is he just being lazy? and do you think i should see my gp about it.? thanks to all =) ps he has 6 teeth too

My daughter did not really start to eat lumpy food until she was about 12 months old but her teeth were really late coming through. Let your son play with food like toast and par boiled carrots and things. He should learn to chew but not swallow first and then aventually he will learn to swollow it. There is nothing wrong with baby food as it contains alot of your childs vitamins and minerals but if he does not show signs of improvement with the chewing foods then may be a trip to the doctors would be a good idea or speak to your health visitor for advice. If your son is growing and is healthy then there is not much wrong with him so don't worry.
