Eleanor has food texture issues. She only eats pureed foods so far. She can take very little texture in her pureed foods before gagging. One issue is that she doesnt chew. She’s never done that motion & I dont think she gets how or why to do it so far.
Well yesterday we decided to try something new- an Oreo cookie! She LOVED it! She would bite little bits off (progress!) & even made the chewing motion a few times with little pieces in her mouth (HUGE progress!) without gagging!
Could Oreo cookies be the gateway food to help Eleanor learn chewing & move on to solids?!! 🤔 This will also teach her self-feeding, which she hasnt been able to do much of yet.
