Chewing and Spitting Out Food _._._._ 18 kids; London, Ontario 38382 posts
Sep 30th '11

Does anyone else's child do this? LO has started doing this pretty consistently every meal for the past month. He readily takes bites of food, will chew for a couple seconds and then spit instead of swallowing. Sometimes I can talk him into actually swallowing, but at least half his food gets chewed up and spit out. I don't normally worry about meal time and just make sure he's provided with healthy snacks throughout the day, but he spits snacks out too :(



Any advice?

Sam does this, usually with meat. It drives me NUTS.

At 10 months? I'd personally say he's not fully ready for solids then.

M started gagging stuff up and spitting it out, maybe around 23 months. He's still fine and healthy and growing though so i'm just letting the phase pass. If it becomes more troublesome then i'll investigate more.



M is 36 inches and 27.5 lbs, so similar size.
