my son still does this and he is 2! i just tell him to stop it ... distract him with something he likes... hes done it since he was born its not constant but aggrivating for sure ive asked doctors and they tell me its part of a discovery phase

My daughter did it between 18-21 months she is 22 months now and just grew out of it. It was getting ridiculous I had to stop the car several times scared she was gagging on something. I asked her doctor and she said it is a trial and error period that they go through. She said that the baby is realizing that when I do this something happens and in addition to the action it causes physically it also get a reaction from mom. I was advised to simply say no and to not over react or carry on about it and it worked for me. Hope this helps good luck

I'm having the same problem and don't know what to do. My son is 15 months old and I tried to just ignore the behavior with no results. Now i take his hand from his mouth and tell him no but he just laughs and thinks we are playing a game so he does it even more. And he makes himself throw up all the time. I'm lost!!

How old is she? My son did the same thing around age 1 and it drove me crazy! He always gagged himself and I was afraid he would throw up. I would always take his hand out of his mouth and tell him no. He grew out of doing it.
