    gagging is definitely different than choking. And coming from a perspective of having had fed him some purees (about 3 weeks or so) before I learned about BLS, there were a few tense moments when he would do things like that (gagging...although he never vomited), but we always let him work it out. I relaxed, daddy relaxed, we gained confidence in it and we started giving more and more items for him to explore.

    That's why it's a really good idea to have some first aid training especially if you're nervous because if baby is gagging (not choking) and you grab them and start banging on their back or sticking your fingers in their mouth it can actually cause them to choke.

    I also did purees for a few weeks before discovering BLS and you definitely get comfortable with it fairly quickly and start gaining confidence about what your child is capable of.
