Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My baby is turning 1 in a week and has no teeth what can I feed him

1 answers
Now that I have to take him off of formula and introduce him to table food I feel lost since he has no teeth to break down solid food. I want to make sure he gets the proper nutrient he needs. When I try to give him small pieces of food he pushes it out with his tongue or acts as if he's chocking and or going to throw up. What can I do?

Try blending his food. He will start gagging because he is not use to eating solid food. It will take him time. To avoid the gagging try giving water in his sippy cup. Hope this works.
