I have a similar problem. My 10 month old has yet to eat the chunkier foods. He automatically gags when I give him anything more chunkier than stage 2 foods. Basically he still eats purees. I am really worried. Does that mean I should also ask my pedi about the therapy?
I've never heard of it. I was just told by friends that he will get it once he is ready.
Sounds like our kiddos are in the same boat...
And I agree with your friends, to some extent. I was along the same lines, of thinking that he would be ready when he's ready. What triggered me to take him to the Dr to talk about it is that he is clearly interested in chunky foods and table foods. He really wants to eat things like crackers, and yogurt melts, and all that good stuff he sees us eating.
I still don't know exactly what the therapy is all about, since we
haven't gone yet. But if your LO isn't progressing, it's worth a Dr appt
to discuss it. Hopefully your little guy will get the hang of chunky food without any intervention!
