LO is 8 months old. He eats puffs like a champ (cut in half), so I decided to boil some sweet potatoes and cut/mash them up for him to eat at lunch. He usually has purees, and he has been handling the chunky purees really well.

Well, he took a tiny piece of mushy sweet potato in his mouth and gagged... then threw up half of his lunch bottle. Ugh. This happened twice.

Is there something I should be doing differently? Or should I just wait to try again when he's older? I was so surprised because he gums the puffs and swallows them without any issues!
