The Many Myths Around How Babies Chew Food

My daughter too was really bad at chewing ..I used to give her mashed fruits ( removing the strings or fibres else she would vomit ) I used to do it in a strainer . Mashed khichdi and mashed chapati milk.. all mashed till around 3 years as she would vomit if any strand or she feels anything in the tongue .. gradually she started bitting.. so don't worry.
Give small cut fruits and take them while you do for outdoor play... The baby will learn gradually..
