I have an 8 month old (no teeth yet) and just now really starting to give him a little something to eat. I'm doing BLW but I'm absolutely horrified that he'll choke. I've read that if he feeds himself, there's a less likely chance he'll choke so I've been having him feed himself. Lately, I've been giving him ripe pear where he could just mash it with his tongue.
My main question is... how big or small should I cut his food? With the pear, I just have this huge chunk for him to hold and put in his mouth.
Any help or comfort will greatly be appreciated =). Thanks!!
