As for the gagging, it only happens once maybe 2x's a months so its not too much a worry for me...now if it was daily or even a couple times a week then that would be a different story!

Thanks for all the input again I really do appreciate it....just wanted to compare notes on anything you guys might have experienced similarily.

The reason it's driving you crazy is that you are a really good mama, girlfriend! (Oh, and only reason we know so much about this is we've been through it, too!!!!)

I'm sorry this is happening to you, I mean to your daughter of course. ALso I am sorry but I did not read the whole thread so maybe I am repeating somebodies advise. There is special food therapy you can take child to. Just press your doctor for it, like our doc wouldn't tell us about, but it is available, our friends are taking their kids to. It is for very picky eaters and it is helping. Please talk to your doc, push for it. It might help.

What a trooper that she tried to eat it. Maybe let her try stuff like that in smaller amounts? Or mixed with something crunchy? Like for example....yogurt with granola in it.

Oh and Alix...she loves yogurt so no problem there! Odd huh!? Its so random with her....thats why I think its a stubbornness thing sometimes!

I know I'm late on the uptake here, but I saw this and had to laugh because I have a 2 1/2 year old son who has some of the weirdest
behaviors with food! at least it's weird for me - according to his doc
this is totally NORMAL for the age. toddlers are very texture-oriented
and sometimes they decide they don't LIKE the texture of a food like,
the day after they ate it with no problem! or one day they will not eat
a thing and the next they clear out the pantry. or, the one I love,
the screaming temper tantrum because you did SOMETHING they don't
like with their food but you don't know what because there is still a
communication gap. recently my son has decided he does not like bread.
so he rips his sandwiches apart and licks the contents out of the inside
and then if I don't catch him right when he is done he rips the licked up
bread into shreds and flings them everywhere. and the other day after
he decided that 3 bites of his mac and cheese was enough he sank his
hands into the bowl and started squishing it between his fingers and then
tried fingerpainting the table with it...
ya gotta love toddlers.
but his doctor does assure me that this is all normal, especially for boys
and that with time, patience and a whole warehouse load or two of kitchen
wipes and paper towels, this too shall pass.
