10 1/2mo gagging on peas#103-28-2010, 10:01 AMHi all. So, my 10 1/2 mo is having difficulty with more textured foods - and peas. He can eat a few bites of the more textured foods, one or two cheerios, or one or two of the "melt in their mouth puffs" and then he gags and vomits. I honestly don't care that he's not eating these things, and I don't even try very often, but I'm wondering if there comes a time when one should suspect a physical problem. What I typically do is give him one puff, then a drink of water/formula. (we stopped bfing early - he had 4 teeth at 4 months and bit so that I bled. It got really horrible for both of us. It's sad, but he's a healthy guy.) He gets in trouble when he starts refusing the drink between bites. Any ideas?

#303-28-2010, 03:42 PMI really know very little about this topic but some questions come to mind:
Does he have any history of any kind of mouth/throat medical interevention? ie. being intubated.
Does he like to put non-food items in his mouth and explore them?
Is he willing to try to eat the textured food or you have to coax him into it?
