My dd is 10 1/2 months old and is ebf. She eats Stage 3 foods and I fix her fruit and some veggies fresh almost every day (like apples, mangos, sweet potatoes). She gags a lot and chokes easily- even on the puffs. I was giving them to her whole and after 3 1/2 weeks of choking every night on them and puking up her dinner, I started breaking them in half for her again and she does fine with this. I'm scared to give her bread or something else she'll choke on. I realize that bm is full of nutrition for her right now, but she also need solids to supplement. She's lost her "chubbiness" from before and was in the 50% weight range (was in 85th% before), so I don't want her to lose weight. She's at the point now that I'm wondering if I'm giving her too many solids. My MIL gives her ebm in a bottle during the day while I work, and she struggles with dd to take her milk. She'll get half, maybe a little more, and then be done with it. Likes to chew on the nippple, and swat at the bottle. She tried the sippy cup- no go on that. Even when she nurses- if it's not first thing in the morning or last night feeding, then she'll eat for about 5 minutes and then try to bite me and laugh and she's done. She just doesn't nurse like she used to. I realize she's more independent now- maybe that's it, but I'm not sure. What do you guys think? Forgot to say that she gets 3 1/2 tablespoons of cereal in the morning with some fruit (either fresh or half a jar), then the rest of her fruit mid-morning. Lunch is 1 jar (6oz or a little less) of veggies and maybe some fruit, and then at supper she gets 1/2 veggie and fresh fruit.
