    We had loads of problems with Tom taking lumps. Think it had something to do with his reflux. Persevere though and she'll get there in the end!

    aww completely normal trix, just introduce them to her over the next week and she will soon get used to them and love them soon enough.

    Anything different is trail and error for a baby.

    Boy pulled alsorts of faces and made alsorts of noises when we first tried on food with lumps in, we just kept trying every now and then until my cousin gave him some after watching her daughter eat it and he has been fine ever since.

    yes its normal hun, we had MAJOR problems with Josh eating lumps as he used to gag really badly & it was quite distressing for him & me.
    slowly does it i think is the key, gradula slight lumpiness to ease Melissa in to a different texture.

    you'll get there hun :hug:

    Maisy was the same with lumps. i used to blitz it just a little till it was 'in between' stage on she was fine.
    dont you find that all of the 2nd stage jars all seem to be pasta based.
    try to give her what we have as much as possible

    DS still struggles with lumpy food now, you should have seen his face with scrambled eggs yesterday! It's really stressful because sometimes he'll be fine, then get to near the end of tea, gag a tiny bit and puke the whole lot back up.

    I remember with Isaac it had to be totally lumpy or totally smooth. He didn't like the in between consistancy. It took him ages to eat lumps though, I think the majority of babies are the same to be honest.

    Doesn't make it any less stressful though trying to get them to eat :roll:

    :D
