Re: 1yr old and trouble with solids

I would definately talk with your ped about GERD. The best "test" is an 8 week trial of Prevacid treatment with journalling to watch symptom progress (or lack thereof).
The other thing to think about is oral aversions or oral motor apraxia or poor oral tone. One easy thing to try is an electric toothbrush. Let your LO close his mouth around it and experience the vibrations, massage the teeth/gums. An OT or Speech therapist can help. You or your ped can refer you to Early intervention/0-3/First steps (each state has their own name, but it is a national program and is free) they will do an assessment and offer services (for free) if indicated!
