gagging

We tried the twins with baby pasta last night, some went down but mostly E sucked the sauce off then spat it out and C gagged :rolleyes:

I know why they gag but was wondering whether babies learn not to gag through trial and error (so i persevere) or whether they instinctively know how to avoid gagging when they're a bit older (so i should leave it a week or two then try again)

anyone know??

Thank you!

Hiya Suzy ...

It's a bit of both really. They'll get used to the feel of more solid food the more they experience it, so definately keep going as it's great for babies to learn the chewing motion they'll need later on

Best thing to do if they're gagging is not to panic and run over with a hooked finger ... Give them chance to move the food forward by themselves, and they'll soon get the hang of it.

The twins don't have any form of puree's now, and only ever have solid food ... They do gag every now and then (especially J, who just shovels it in :rolleyes: ), but by not panicking and allowing them to get on with it, they do it a lot less than in the beginning

The only time DS gagged was when we tried him on mush.
As soon as we started the baby lead weaning he stopped gagging and choking!

(I am a Big or let's say HUGE fan of baby lead weaning) :)

Thanks girls. I think I'm quite good at not panicking, although they both eye me very suspiciously as I sit there grinning at them encouragingly as they struggle away! We get a fair bit off gagging with finger foods too (toast, cheese, melon etc) so i've only really tried them the once. I guess/hope the gagging will tail off if we stick with it then.

Thanks again :D

The only time Mooch has gagged is when she tried to shove 6 whole dried apricots in her mouth at once! Now I chop them into little pieces and put them in a bowl she is fine.
