    Hi my tod - Aahana is 17 months. She has been gulping her food down instead of chewing it. Otherwise if i give her snacks, like chips, or some finger foods she chews on them. But during her meal times, which consists mainly of dal-chawal n mixed vegs, she keeps the food in her mouth until the next morsel is ready and I tel her to munch her food, but the next thing she does is simply gulp it down instead of munching.
    Many a times she gets the vomit feeling due to same...
    Can someone please share how do i make her chew on her meals too? How can i stop her habit of keeping d food in her mouth for longtime?

    Please suggest....

    same here!! no luck.. its still ongoing 4+ yrs.. somedays are better, some days are worse... i think i spoiled my LO with specially made food.. but then i understand some kids do have problem to textures.. and then there are people who have extra sensitive tastebuds which make them fussy to food.. i do realise my Lo eats some type of food without any coaxing and some needs all sorts of threats!!!

    Hi Dear friends,

    I can understand the situation very well, because even my 20mths old daughter does the same.

    She bites carrot, chips, cookie etc., when if goes to dhal rice/ any meal, she gulps most of the time, which leads to vomiting uttimes.

    Now i shown her see you got to chew the food while i have my meal and i keep saying on and off chew the food...if i raise my voice she starts getting tears..

    As kids like anything in song form..i keep on singing " Bite and Eat repeatedly....which is working out now most of the times.:)
