my daughter is 8 months old. we started her on solids when she was 6 months old. i've given her mostly earth's best baby food. anyhow, i wanted to experiment with more texture and also start her on learning to self feed. i gave her some avocado the other day. sliced it and gave her a piece. she mostly just smooshed it up in her hands. i then mashed some up to give to her and she mostly gagged on it and spit it out. what does this mean? she takes pureed food fine. is she not ready for self-feeding and more textured food? how should i go about this? thanks.
