Hi everyone. For the past 2 evenings, we've been giving DS a wedge of avocado. (He's just over 6 mos) So far, I *think* it's going well. He took the wedge, crushed it in his hand, smeared a little on the place mat, then brought it to his mouth. He did swallow little bits, but when he bit off an unmanageable chunk, he just spit it out. He keeps going back to his busted up chunks of avocado. Does that mean he's ready?
DH is a little concerned about the threat of choking, but I am reassured by the spitting out and occasional coughing. Is this how it goes for the next few months in order for him to learn the mechanics of eating?
