The first mash feed one hand, a big step, because your baby the important development direction will now begin solid foods.
On the other hand, it is not so easy: the mush is everywhere, but not in the mouth of your child.
Babies have a pronounced suction reflex; this is first to lose. Because if the suction reflex is still too strong, the swallowing is very difficult and the laboriously made mash does not remain in the mouth of your baby.
First, only helps: wait and try again after a few days.
If your baby is still scolding the mash after several attempts, you should simply try it with a different food combination. For example, you can try parsnips instead of carrots.
Consistency is, of course, also crucial. Small babies need a very fine mesh, while older babies may have some pieces. Using a stomper or a fork you can crush the food so that you get a very coarse mush. With the potato press, finer flakes can be pressed again, and these can be processed with a little liquid, such as broth, water or milk, to a finer slurry. With the blender bar or blender, it is possible to make a very thin slurry
