Re: Just starting and having problems
LOL, my DD was the opposite, she gagged on table foods for the longest time. I didn't think I'd ever get her off baby food!
DS is a different story though, he LOVES food, he's not quite 6 months but makes a dive for anything we're eating/drinking and loves trying our food. He's eating rice cereal & a few of the jarred foods so far & loves them too, but I can see him getting bored with those.
I'd say as long as he's not choking or gagging, let him show you what he can do! And that mesh feeder thing IS a great thing too.
