About a month ago I noticed that DS (15 months) would swallow something without first chewing it. It wasn't often so just put it down to laziness.
He's now doing it constantly, with any food! This morning he are an entire banana without chewing it... Every bite (some big!) got swallowed whole. The same with spag bowl the other night, stew and rice, things that really need to be chewed!!! He just swallows it like it's nothing, sometimes straining.
Surely that's terrible for his digestion? I have no idea how to stop him doing it. He's been on finger foods since 6 months and didn't really have any puree until about 3 months ago, which was very occasionally out of a pouch when out. It doesn't matter if the mouthful is big or small, fed to him or fed by him.What to do??
