We have been doing a combo of BLS and purees since 6 months. DD is now 8.5 months. We give her soft foods to gnaw on and pureed foods as well. She only gets a few spoonfuls for lunch and dinner. She gags on everything. Even food that is only slightly thicker than breastmilk! She loves to try to eat though and we don't force her but do give her a variety of foods to try. Should I back off feeding her foods right now or just let her experiment and keep gagging? She is swallowing some food (I see it in her diaper) but most of it is spit out. Also, she is breastfed and fed expressed breastmilk during the day at daycare. I haven't given her water or tried a cup. Should I?
