    Its a phase.

    Only give him 1 or 2 items at a time.

    Eating is LEARNED skill. Say (and model by you doing it) things like "take small bites" then YOU take a SMALL bite. Say "you need to chew and swallow" then YOU do this. And so on.

    Totally empathize with you on this one. DS is 10 months old and still occasionally gags to the point of vomiting. I'm still a nervous wreck, but I don't let him see that. And when he gets it out, he almost always just picks it back up and tries again. But it has dramatically decreased - at around 8 months old he gagged and vomited 3-5 times per meal. Now he maybe does it once or twice a week. It gets better! They learn really quickly!
