My little girl is 16 months old and places her figures down her throut to make herself sick. I would like so suggestions on how to get her to stop it. Tapping the figures does not work, she loves hot sauce so, really Im out of ideas.

I would ignor it and give her absolutely no attention when she does it. If she makes a mess she stays that way til bath time. Kids drop unrewarded behavior.

my son used to do the same thing when he was roughly the same age....

he would have patches where he thought it was funny....

after a while i would ignore it... and he dosnt do it anymore....

sometimes i think it is something new they have discovered and of course we react.. and they love that so they keep doing it....

if it is just the attention she is after, as hard as it is maybe try ignoring it and see if she settled down.... otherwise everytime you see her about to do it just look at her with a straight face and move her hand away and say no we dont do that.... and look away as if you are not worried....

that way you are acknowledging what she is about to do but you arent giving her the reaction she wants....

hope this helps....

good luck
