Transitioning to eating solids

My son Ben is 11 months old and struggling with eating anything thicker than a purée. He has a strong interest in food and will bring foods to his mouth, but will gag and refuse to swallow anything solid. We’ve been working with our pediatrician and are about to start working with a feeding therapist but I would love to know if anyone has ever experienced this with their little ones and how did you help them transition to eating solid foods?

@stephanie.boardman22 I’ve seen people use a food grinder so they start getting the taste of the same things you are eating and gradually mix in tiny bits of the food into the ground food and slowly increase the sizes of the bits.

@stephanie.boardman22 Hello Stephanie, checking in to see how things are going with Ben and the food transitioning? any progress or luck?
