Hi all! My 23 month old daughter is afraid of doctors to the point she will get so upset she vomits? I guess her having a sensitive gag reflex doesn't help..! It also happens when person she doesn't know comes to our house and if I take her some where she doesn't recognise! Like someone else's house or anywhere that looks like a doctor's office. She will run around the supermarket without a care in the world and go to houses she knows. Just want to know if any other mothers have this problem and is it normal. Thanks x

My daughter was somewhat similar. She would not vomit but would cry and scream bloody murder. She was very shy. At our house she was fine, but anywhere else to would either claim up or cry and scream. At 3 yrs old...her first year preschool she went ok, but took her 3 months before she would talk to the teachers one on one. She is now 5 yrs old and recently went over to a stranger with two dogs (we were both watching a baseball game) and started talking to her about her dogs. Totally amazed me! I don't have much advise for you except to keep introducing the unfamiliar to her.
