Can't fault the girl! Crisps (swiftly followed by chocolate) would be top of my list too. Well done little one, lovely news grin

yeah who cares what it is? That's ace

skips are the only thing dd can feed herself. She can't choke cos the bits melt so quickly

sorry to hear that

I really can empathise with what yr saying re going the wrong way with eating - but better taking time and doing it properly and safely. I felt like it was step forward, 2 steps back. Before ds was born, my dd was eating sandwiches. He's 2 now and she's spoon fed blended food only

Frustrating all round. She's desperate to eat and sure that's one of the reasons she mouths everything. But at least she doesn't have a constant chest infection. In retrospect, I can see I really rushed her feeding. When SALT got involved again 18 mths ago it was really hard to be told how much she was actually struggling with it all, how aspirating her feeds was causing constant illness

All said tho - I don't think crushed up skips can do much damage. I was going to try one of them baby feeder things - with the mesh that food is kind of sucked through but was then advised that she could bite through it which is dangerous. Arrrggghhhh

You have my sympathies. Tis all terribly upsetting and one of them smack you in the face type things
