My 9 month old still does not eat finger foods because I have a gigantic fear that he will choke and it doesn't help that he gags on every finger food I try to give him. I started with the yogurt melts but they were to big and don't dissolve fast enough. He choked on the puffs. I tried the rice rusks and he did okay except every time a piece would go near his throat he would start coughing and gagging. What else can I do? I know he doesn't NEED finger foods at this point, but I'm scared this will become a huge issue when he really does need to learn to eat.
Also, does anyone know where I can find information on taking a baby CPR class? I think that might help at least somewhat alleviate my fear.
