More BLW with a 5 month old

I like starting with very hard foods that my toothless baby, who has very poor jaw strength and graded control (age appropriately) cannot bite pieces off of. They really work on jaw strength and endurance but even more importantly they begin moving the gag reflex back and encourage tongue lateralization (or the side to side movement of the tongue that helps to move food to the gums and eventually to the teeth for chewing.)
