I know there are probably lots of things I could try feeding my 11 mo DD, I just keep drawing blanks though! I've looked at websites and recipe books, and am not finding good ideas for her. We are both on a dairy free diet - and she still has a fairly sensitive gag reflex. She's getting better - up until recently everything had to be pureed or as soon as she'd try to swallow she'd gag and throw up! She is only about 15 1/2 pounds, so I'd like to try to find more things for her to eat! She BFs about every 3 hours during the day, wakes up twice at night to BF. Right now, she's eating oatmeal with banana in the morning (this is a recent improvement, even oatmeal used to make her gag!), usually some type of jarred puree in the afternoon, often mixed with rice cereal (squash, sweet potato, spinach - Earth's Best baby food)...banana/avocado/coconut oil mixture late afternoon. I think I could try giving her some potato - tried quinoa and she didn't like the texture, but it's been awhile so I think I might try that again. What else could I try that wouldn't be a gag/choking hazard for her? I just tried feeding her split-pea mush that I made this week and she didn't like it - she very politely tries 2-3 bites of new things and then decides not to open her mouth again. Oh- I also have fed her black beans that I put through the food mill- mixed with breastmilk- she ate those OK. I've also tried giving her pieces of banana (for her to feed herself) since it's a flavor which is familiar to her, but she gags once she gets it in her mouth. Have also tried egg yolk various ways and she didn't like that....though I haven't tried scrambled yet...Ideas?
