    That's so great!!! I am very happy to hear his eating is improving. Don't rush to the next stage. Take a minute to enjoy him doing so well. Xxx

    I know lots of members of the hub are very keen on BLW but considering the long road you have been on and the anxiety you have had with finger food I really think this slower approach would be great for your bubImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1436527865.558001.jpg

    I hope you can read that.

    I fed purées (along side lots of finger food) for much longer then all the other mums around me and I now have an almost 2year old who eats really well. Good luck. X

    What happens if you give him solders of bread? Have you been talking to a pead about the feeding issues?

    I wonder if you could try putting mash on the end of a piece of toast instead of a spoon?

    Do you have a paed or GP that you trust? I'm a bit torn on what to say because I do believe that every babe is different and while I think BLW has great merit and I've followed it for two out of my three kids, I don't think it's for every baby but I do know that sensory issues can present quite early and think that surely, early intervention is key and for him to be vomiting and reacting so strongly to finger foods consistently, I think that it might be worth investigating further.
    I'm not for one second saying that I think your DS has any issues and I'm so pleased that he's made such an improvement, I just think that if in another 3-6 months, he's still vomiting etc... then maybe it would be an idea to make an appointment.

    Good idea. I might try this too. @heartstringz, what if you put some of the mash you are feeding him on the tray table? Will he pick some up and eat it, or at least try to put it in his mouth? You could then gradually increase lumpiness. I have been doing this with my 8mth old, and he seems to be getting the hang of it.

    Even popping a bit of puree/mash/yoghurt onto his finger and then guiding it to near his mouth so he could lick it off?
    I used to dip cucumber sticks in my kids favourite yoghurt and they'd lick/suck it off.
    Might be worth a try?

    If he's only just really started to eat in the last 3 weeks then give him a chance to get used to puréed foods before going chunkier.

    We've been on solids since 4.5 months and I still don't do a lot of BLW - maybe 30/70. He has some bits - tonight was very small meatballs w veggie mush, breakfast was small pieces of fruit w milk-softened weetbix or toast soldiers - and I feel far more confident when I give him mush (he eats it all from a spoon), whereas larger bits get thrown in the floor or played with. I figure as long as he's eating, and getting some practice with larger pieces it's all good.

    But again if your DS only been eating for three weeks then he needs to get used to purée texture before moving onto bigger pieces.

    That's a really good point. It's taken us quite a while to move from purees to mash to some finger foods, with quite a bit of spitting out and throwing on the floor etc ☺. We do a bit of each now, moving gradually lumpier. I'm sure your DS will do it in his own time ☺
