This is true they all figure it out.. I agree with just ignoring it is the best thing.. there really isn't anything we as parents can do other then say stop that please and at that age i understand but not 100%... My is 2 years old and he was doing at 4 month till he was about 6 or 7 months old.. MY daughter is amlost 8 months (adjusted age 7 months) she is just not learning that she can gag herself and once again i am just letting her discover the little thing that her body can do... Hope this is helpful and Take care and Best wishes....

My son went through this and stopped on his own. He was always making himself gag, but I just ignored it. I think he just discovered his gagging made a weird noise. So, hopefully she will just grow out of it. Just ignore it if you can!
