Thanks and I rarely give him sweets, I don't like too, its the family events where he gets a lot of sweets because my family gives him some behind my back, but I think it might be frosting or really sweet things because that is the only time it has happened. But I will tell his doctor about it and see what she tells me.. Thanks for the advice.

Um I've never heard of this problem but maybe you should refrain from giving him sweets and take him to the doctor. He might have some sort of medical issue going on or possibly allergies/intolerances that you are unaware of.

You might want to figure out what exactly the sweets are that are bothering him so much, maybe there is a type of food that is most bothersome.

Plus at 15 months he doesn't even really need to be having sweets. My sons 3 and he doesn't have sweets too often (I mean he has them but they're a special treat instead of an every day thing). At 15 months his little body might just not be able to handle all the sugar or whatever other things they have in it.

Either way I would cut the sweets out and see your doctor, possibly get allergy testing done or see if he's got an intolerance.
