Nine month old throwing up after solids

Hi there,

My DS is nine months old. He has ten teeth and is very interested in food - if I'm eating a banana he'll come flying over in his walker with his mouth wide open. The intention is there, he wants a bite of everything.

He will eat mashed up fruit and Ella's Kitchen 4m+ pouches, which are basically liquid, but not the ones for older babies, I think they're 7m+. This is the same with similar brands. He is keen to chew but struggles with his swallowing. I was pretty relaxed about this, every baby is different..

However, on the rare occasions that he does swallow slightly heavier food - for example a wee bit of mashed potato, soft baby carrots etc..within five minutes we have projectile vomit, and everything that's in his belly comes up.

I'm not expecting him to munch into a steak or anything, but surely this isn't right?

A friend's baby had issues for a while taking slightly more lumpy food with tw and he too used to throw up quite badly. That worked itself out a little later. i think his was more down to gagging making his sick though. We are blw here, but we have thrown up food related to issues with reflux at eight months. Currently I'm not concerned and will only be if she loses weight or stops gaining or is still doing it at 18 months. It's a little downheartening when it happens though sad

My DS could not cope with lumps or proper solid food at this age and he had tongue tie. Do any of the symptoms sound familiar?

I was gonna say tongue tie too, would definitely see doctor/hv if vomit is projectile

Could be a texture problem. We BLW and I think had a lucky escape with DD2 since (at 6) she still hates creamy or gloopy textures (so would have done badly at that stage 2 weaning type foods). My niece (who was TW) had a similar issue. In both cases more solid food (like steak grin ) was not an issue.

At 9 months your LO should be developing their pincer grip so will be able to pick up and manipulate most foods. I'd try offering 'real' food (with no alt) and see how he does.

Agree with drinks make a batch of blueberry pancakes for breakfast and if he's sick after those, see the GP smile
