I decided we would start with toast. Seemed like an easy choice and it has defiantly paid off.
The toast is always lightly toasted with a little margarine. It is meant to be easier to swallow if the bread I toasted rather than just giving the normal bread.
Didn't go as well as I had planned. Paige played with toast rather than eating it but I figured that it was something different so she was just getting used to it.
She took a bite! I was amazed. She pulled a face as always with new foods but did have a few more bites.
Day three and four
Like a pro she picked up the toast and straight away took bites and has continued to do so.
She has gagged but not choked. There is a big difference and I'm sure I read somewhere that is it actually good for them to gag as it teaches them. I always make sure to watch Paige 100% of the time when she is eating just in case she doesn't choke!
It's very messy but very fun and I can't wait to try her with more things. She loves picking it up, playing and then feeding herself.
Next up carrots!!
