I really need some advice in how / if to increase the "solidness" (if you know what I mean) of food for my 9 month old.
He has always been a great eater of any fruit / veg / meat etc that I have been giving him since 6 months old. The only problem is that every time I chop something a little rougher he will just spit it out, when food is a very smooth consistency he readily eats it all.
My greatest worry is bread / toast. He loves vegemite on wholemeal toast after his rice cereal, but he almost chokes nearly every day and I am a nervous wreck. This morning he was trying to eat a small piece and ended up throwing up toast & cereal - a truly gross combination!
If he is just not ready, I don't have a problem with it, but do I need to be doing something to help get him to the next stage?
Thanks for your help!
