Table food & sippy question. pinback 1 child; Wisconsin 855 posts

When your baby started table foods, did it take them awhile to adjust? (I know, obviously it WILL) but I more so mean how their stomach tolerates them, if that makes sense.
I don't know why but sometimes my son gags (not from choking) after eating foods (like after the meal or 30-60 minutes later). Example: we went out to eat last night and he had broken up pieces of chicken tenders. He ended up gagging and puking an hour after dinner. :(



And the sippy question: How long did it take your LO to learn to hold it upright when sitting? I keep trying to show my DS and he isn't getting it, so we have to lay him down with it. TIA!

If he was gagging after eating Chicken Tenders, I would wonder if maybe it was the grease used in cooking that upset his stomach. Maybe he's just not quite ready for table foods. I'd definitely start with easier things, like soft vegetable and fruits first, instead of meats.

We started my LO on food that we ate, no baby food or mush. She never gagged and it didn't upset her stomach. It took her a little while to adjust to the firmer bowel movements but nothing crazy. My daughter still doesn't tip her sippy up much (she's almost 9 months) but she does do well with the straw sippys since she doesn't have to tip it. Maybe try one of those?
