I'm having trouble finding very much information and wasn't sure where to post this. Preparing to start myself and 2 kids on GAPS hopefully soon, but in the meantime I'm starting solids with 9mo DD as she REALLY wants to eat. I'm trying to do only GAPS legal foods. So far I've tried:
Bone broth made from 100% grassfed organic beef: this is OK but she only gets a tad bit in her mouth by dipping her hand in the broth and putting to her mouth. Way too runny.
Saurkraut: this works a little better for getting in her mouth
Meat: I have given her chunks of chicken and turkey to chew on/taste.
At this point I think she is not really swallowing except maybe a bit of the bone broth. It's only been a few weeks. The GAPS books says to start out with broth, add juice, THEN solids such as veggies in the broth. The poor kid wants to chomp and chew! Someone told me raw chicken liver (I have some but when it thaws I will cook it, don't feel comfortable with raw) for her to gnaw on. Thanks!
