table food

My 10 month old gags any time we give her table food. any ideas as to what i can do to help her get over this? She eats cheerios, puffs and yogurt melts with no problem. Also, she doesn't pick up the cheerios, puffs or yogurt melts and put them in her mouth yet either i have to feed them to her.

  • It sounds to me like she needs a little more time.

  • Just put the food in front of her and she'll figure it out. If she's gagging and not picking things up to feed herself, it's possible shes just not ready for solids yet.
