I don't know why he burst into tears

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

I don't know why he burst into tears

At first I thought he'd bitten his tongue - sudden crying as if in pain in the middle of dinner. Then some violent coughing (but not gagging)... then more crying (even as he tried to put more food in his mouth :? )

Do you think something had got stuck half way down? Or went the wrong way? He was breathing - but there were lots of tears...

Maybe it was a bit too big? Indigestion? Bruno has done this & I've assumed he bit his Tongue / finger. If he carried on eating I guess its nothing serious. Has he been OK since?

Hmm Eleanor could be onto something. Do you think his molars could have started cutting?

Thanks for these suggestions. I don't think it's teeth related - he still only has 2 bottom teeth (the top ones have been almost through FOREVER and giving him a lot of pain - but not sudden crying like that).

I think it is more likely that a chunk of the sugar free cookie he was working on got stuck or just got swallowed when it was too big and hurt. Anyway he was fine all evening and (apologies to those who have had a sleepless night) slept right through.

But I'll maybe wait on giving him more cookies till his top teeth finally come through (will that make any difference?).

I didn't notice any difference in Bruno's eating abilities from bottom only to top & bottom but he's younger than Roo. It was the initial teeth that caused an eating problem re biting off lumps that were too big. Now he eats fine and is working on top laterals.

I thought Bruno was about a month older... Roo's just ten and a bit months.

But interesting that the top teeth didn't make much difference. I REALLY hope they come through soon though (despite being afraid of him biting me when feeding) since he really seems to be in pain with his gums often :cry

Today he's poorly again - fussing and crying and just not himself - and a fever. He's been ill with one thing or another for over a month now... poor Roo :(

Mrs A, Im with you on going from one thing to the next. Adams troubles started with chickenpox then moved to teething.... Glad Roo was OK after crying incident!
