My 19 month old son refuses to eat solid food. Every time I have tried giving him finger food, as soon as he puts it in his mouth he will throw it up.

The only way I can get my son to eat is to blend his food, then he will eat it - but he will refuse any solids lumps and throw up.

What can I do to help him eat solid foods?

    Kealeigh, welcome to the site. I made some edits to clean up the grammar, and I also added an actual question - if this isn't what you're asking, please clarify. But be aware, we're not able to answer medical questions, so if the question is "should I take my child to the doctor", the answer is "yes", but not because of anything we're able to say about your situation - that's the answer any time you have to ask. :) – Joe Feb 19 at 17:12

    A doctor should be your first step, would be bad to suggest something thinking the issue is one thing and then have the issue be something else and harm the child with one of the many suggestions I have. – Jack M. Feb 19 at 19:01
  • What kind of solid foods have you offered? Please give some specific examples. – Timur Shtatland Feb 19 at 20:47
  • Does your child make any attempt to chew their food if you present them with something that can't be swallowed directly? – Bart van Ingen Schenau 14 hours ago
