Introducing lumps, bumps and new flavours

It’s a good idea to progress from purees after a short while, not just because life has more to offer than things that can be sucked through a straw, but because chewing helps develop the same muscles needed for speech.

Gradually introduce thicker purees, as well as mashed, grated and chopped food. Tiny pasta shapes are a great way to thicken things up. It’s surprising what gums can get through so don’t think you need to wait for a set of teeth to appear.
