My son has this new thing that he just wont stop doing it.

He's always putting his hands and fingers and sticking them down his throat and gagging all the time. Sometimes causing himself to throw up.. Any ideas to stop..

My daughter has done this and she made herself puke. But she stopped after the second time of puking. I think this started when her back teeth were coming in.

i think if you just say oh thats yucky dont make your tummy sick once when he does it.. then give it no more attn after that, my 2yr old gags himself, hasnt made himself throw up, but close, i find it works when i do that

For my son, it was an attention thing. He would do it all the time! Politically correct or not, he got spanked on his rear everytime he did it. I am not talking about beating him just a swat to let him know its not ok. He would make himself throw up all the time. Eventually he got over it when he saw that mom meant business and that was not the way to get cuddled!

My fourteen month old son just started doing this too. I will be interested to read your replies.

I don't think there is really a way to stop that because you can't take his hands away from him. It's just something babies do, my son used to do that too, it is completely normal. He will stop eventually.
