My ds is 8 months this week, and having tried lumpy food a few times, after a few mouthfulls and some gagging, he refuses to eat it. (I have to confess i have only tried the jars of 7month + that has lumps in, as have been giving jars due to being on holiday for 3 weeks). What i cant understand is he loves his finger foods- toast, rusks, rice cakes, cheese, grapes!!

Now im home we are using up the pre-made purees from AK that i have in the freezer, but what do i do about the whole lump rejection??

My DS is 8mo and we're having the same probs - what we found worked was just letting him get into it with his fingers.

Messy, but it works

I don't get the whole 'lumpy food' stage (we have been blw). I can't think of many foods that are 'lumpy' apart from maybe soup - why not just do finger food? Those lumpy jars sound revolting.

what about trying pasta like fusilli (sp?) mixed with some of your veg purees...this is what we did for ds1 when he refused the lumpy puree stage.....

I think it depends what the lumpy food is. Mine loves rice with cheese and peas or risotto, but if its dry she tips it back out with her tongue. I think the best thing is not to worry about it, do finger foods and purees and see when it next comes up. thing is not to avoid certain foods, we have one day when it comes out and the next when its gobbled down!
