I read a couple of the other gagging posts here, but mine was slightly different so I wanted to check too...
LO turned 6 months on Saturday & we started him on a piece of apple, which he loved & sucked on. A couple days later he was able to gum off a piece, which he gagged on & returned some of his BM breakfast. He's gagged on that and a banana now -- well any time he can get a portion off, he'll gag on it. I tried mashing the banana & letting him get it into his mouth via spoon - still gagged. He's ok with the yogurt I preload for him (loves it!!).
He's always had a sensitive gag reflex, when I was trying to wean him off the shield & doing the "sandwich & shove", he'd gag every time.
Is this something that will be better if we wait...or is it something he's probably going to have to work through no matter how old he is?
