    Default Choking

    Dd is 17 months and has been feeding herself for AGESSS now. Never really been any issues.

    But lately she seems to ve going through a stage where she puts as much as she can fit in her mouth and then ends up choking.

    Its quite annoying to now take a step back and only give her a couple of tiny piece of food on her tray at a time.

    What to do here?

    Better to keep giving her only a few bits at a time even if you fell like you are taking a few steps back.

    After ds2's little friend died after choking on a piece of carrot at 3yrs old I am even more cautious now even though ds2 who is 3 is quite capable. It's scared the hell out of me.

    My DD is 17 months too and the same. Just keep giving a few little pieces at a time. She only does it with certain foods too.

    Mr DS2 still does this at almost 4, totally get the frustration.

    I found with DS1 though that it was a phase. We just went back to only giving him a few pieces for awhile, but the phase didnt last too long.

    Bahahahaha! You know those cereal fruit bars? D shoves an entire one of those in his mouth - and then gags and vomits it back up and cries cos he wants another one...he was sent her as payback for the stress I put my parents through I am certain lol.

    I thought this was a sensory thing? They are learning how much they can safely out in their mouths.
    This is what I was told when I queried it.

    There are 42 steps to learn to eat. So it is all apart of learning... But i just didnt know weather i should allow her to do it?

    I'll bring it up with our occupational therapist and report back to everyone
