1) Asher is not very good at swallowing solids.
2) Asher has a very sensitive gag reflex.
We were out at our favorite coffee place, Town Hall Coffee (www.townhallcoffee.com), and my mom gave both Asher and Benjamin a chunk of brioche to gum. Asher managed to gum it just fine, but once it was in his mouth, he had no idea what to do with it. He began gagging/choking on it, and I leaned him forward and started smacking his back... which brought up a little spit up, followed by a flood of baby vomit. All over the sidewalk (thank goodness we were outside and not inside on their nice, clean floor!). EW.
No more solids for Asher for the time being.
