And sorry if I'm being patronising with you being a nurse and all...
the infant choke method is different, the heimlich isn't used like with an older child or adult, maybe just look at a video on-line, with an infant it's more like a chest compression.
Thanks, I know this. I'm completely comfortable with "what" to do - it doesn't mean I'm not afraid of it happening. I was just sharing how afraid I actually am, when I mentioned Owen choking.
Anyway, the first trial went amazing. He ate more than he ever has lol. He did, as I was afraid, bite off HUGE pieces - and I, as I was afraid, freaked out inside... however, I watched and waited and he spit a lot out, and mashed the rest. He ended up eating, 1/4 pear (offered 1/4 raw and 1/4 steamed - he didn't like the raw at all) and a stick of watermelon. He actually drank some water out of a regular cup too, which was quite impressive to us both.
Thanks for all the help ladies
