Remember how I've mentioned that the Chipmunk won't eat anything unless it's been pureed? I wasn't joking.
He'll be 10 months old next week and he still hasn't had a cheerio. We've put them in his mouth, but after about two seconds he starts gagging and proceeds to projectile vomit. It's not pretty. We've also tried him on those Gerber Puff things since they just dissolve the second they get into your mouth. That produces the same effect as a Cheerio.
Last night we tried Redi-Whip. Hubby put some on the tip of his finger and let the Chipmunk lick it off. We thought he would love it. I mean, who doesn't like cream or sugar? Put them together and it should have been fool proof! I mean, the stuff practically disintegrates the second it leaves the can. He should have loved it - dammit!
You can guess what happened, can't you?
He gagged and projectile vomited the second he tried to move the stuff from the front of his mouth to the back.
When is he supposed to get over this? The Monkey was eating Cheerios at seven months and could probably do it semi-unsupervised by ten. I don't remember it being this hard. Even now, if the Chipmunk's rice cereal isn't as watery as he would like he starts the whole gag routine. I know kids develop at different rates, but this seems a little extreme. At the rate we're going, he'll be in Kindergarten before he's able to eat like a toddler. Any suggestions?
