when your baby keep the food in the mouth, will he swallow it afta some time..??
if he does swallow it, then it's ok.. just have to b more patient while feeding him.. wen my son was younger, he was liddat too.. likes to keep the food inside the mouth for a long time.. until i gave him water to drink.. then he will slowly swallow it together w the water..
finger foods.. my son dont like finger foods too wen he was young.. he prefer 'older' foods.. what we eat, he will eat.. he won't eat those baby food kind.. like puree etc.. he prefer more solid foods.. so i had to mash the rice a lil so that he can swallow beta.. or give it together w some soup..
how old is your son now..? maybe you can try giving him a more solid food instead of those mashed foods.. worth trying.. =)
