Re: Tongue Thrust reflex at 7.5 months?
My DS is the same age, and also still has this to some extent. We started solids about 3 weeks ago, and although he's still not very interested in eating what I offer him, most of what he does take in, gets pushed back out. It has been getting better though. Now I can see that he's moving the food around his mouth with his tongue, tasting it, and getting it to the back to where he can swallow.
I've also heard that they "should've" lost this reflex by the time they start solids, but I really think they just need to practise. If your DD is showing that many signs she's ready to eat, I would just keep offering her the food. She'll get it soon enough.
