Awwww, clever boy Josh. When you first tried did he gag a bit on the lumps Tracey? I haven't tried Jasmine as yet although she is on the sloppy stuff, most of the time she's great but every now and again I think she tries to swallow too muchand gags a bit. Her hand co-ordination still isn't great so am waiting for her to put thigs to her mouth before I try any finger food.
Thats really good, he's doing great. George (21 months) still won;t eat lumpy dinners, they still have to be pureed although I do them quite thick now. He'll eat alot of finger food but if there is a tiny lump of carrot or chicken in his dinner he just spits the whole mouthful out! x
Just start slow and steady, Make sure the lumps are soft lumps, and stick to it. They will gag, they will also push the lumps to the front, but they will eventually get the hang of it. Its a matter of sticking to it.
Holly has eaten what we eat for ages, and has now started using a fork and spoon.... very very messily... LOL

He has a bowl with half Sloppy and half lumpy food so I bribe him with slop first! over the last few days he's started excepting the lumps more and more - he gagged and spat it all out at first but now he chews and swallows the majority :-)
Lisa will eat lumpy food, but she doesn't chew it lol.....just throws it down her throat.
She can't eat toast or bread, or cakes and things like that. She gets it stuck in the roof of her mouth, then when it comes out she chokes on it. It's really scarey, as when she has done that in the past, I've not seen that she's had anything in her mouth, and thought, god, I might have put her to bed, or not watching her, oh, it doesn't bare thinking about. She is, of coarse, fine with chocolate lol.....or anything that melts in the mouth.
