so, once we were started, we quickly moved on to the following foods in week 1:
big chunks of steamed butternut squash, which she definitely swallowed.
banana, which she seemed to like, and was expertly presented to her after (i'm sorry i can't remember who it was) someone explained to me how to do it (see picture).
apple, which she wasn't really bothered with.
steamed courgette, which was sucked for a long time.
asparagus, which she sucked on, but didn't seem to be swallowed.
