Anytime my 11.5 month old son has anything but crunchy, or bread-like textures in his mouth, he gags and alot of the time vomits. He wants them so badly, especially at dinner time and he sees what we're eating, but as soon as it hits his tongue, the gagging starts. I've tried making pieces so absolutely tiny that he'd pretty much just get a taste, and he still gags. He is perfect with anything crunchy like the Gerber Puffs, Dippers, even cookies and breads. I've tried the carrot pieces, I've tried mashing bananas, mashed peas from my plate, an itty, bitty piece of turkey (he promptly vomited everywhere).
Has anyone else experienced this? He will be going to the doctor soon, but I wanted to get your opinions on it. He's certainly in no danger of being underweight, considering he's about 26 pounds! Please let me know of any experiences with this or any words of wisdom. Thanks!
