My 11.5 mo dd is shoving food in her mouth fast and furious now that she has four teeth. She forgets to swallow before putting more in, gags and chokes on it, sometimes spits up - but all the time, she's fussing and crying for more!

Needless to say, mealtimes are not so pleasant. What can I do?

Is she super hungry? sounds sort of like she is..... Maybe you could give her snacks more often?

Just a thought....I do know that some kids just eat like this. My best friend's dd eats like she's famished ALL the time...just *shovels* it in.....

Sorry! I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing near you! Maybe she got my genes? :LOL

I'm sorry, that's not very nice of me to laugh, I just got this mental picture, you know? Is there any way you could make a game of it? Make up a silly little ditty about chewing and swallowing before you take more? Singing little ditties always seemed to help Sophia over developmental hurdles and difficult transitions, like getting her face washed. :
