    It can be so worrying for us when they gag like this! It is very normal to see gagging such as this with new textures at such a young age. I wouldn’t be concerned just yet. He is so young and it’s all completely new to him. If the gagging is happening with every mouthful I would pull back on that particular texture for now but certainly don’t let it deter you from trying again in a week or so.

    If it persists over the coming months and doesn’t improve at all I would check in with the GP to see if you can get a referral to a speech pathologist however. As bubs grow the gag reflex moves back on the tongue and is less easily triggered so if this doesn’t occur it’s worth looking into it for peace of mind.
