ok, so this has been going on for a while but it just got worse a few minutes ago. my daughter will put her fingers in her mouth and make herself gag. i figured before that she probably just didn't realize that that would happen if she stuck her fingers so far back, so we just basically would tell her "no, don't do that". well, i was just in our bedroom putting stuff away, and she kept doing it everytime i would turn my back on her and the last time she did it, she actually spit up a little. so now i'm officially freaked out and i don't know how to make her stop!!! i'm in the living room now, and of course i've noticed she hasn't done it again, so now i feel like she's doing it for attention. it's hard not to react to her doing that though and i even tried swating her on the butt a few times that she did it, but she didn't stop. should i just leave the room when she starts doing it? i don't know if it would really work though because she doesn't only do that when we are at home.

I'm not sure, sorry. Maybe ask your pediatrician about it next time you see him/her.

I think it's really, really common for kids to do this around the age of 1. My daughter did. It's just another way of them exploring their body.

My daughter, now 3, went through this phase. I can't remember if it was 1 or 2, but she thought it was hilarious. I would tell her not to do it, but also try to ignore it because she realized quickly it would get her attention.

Yup all 4 of my girls went through that at around 1 I used to just tell them not to and try and not put to much attention on it!

Try your best to ignore it. I'm not sure how much a one year old can truly understand "no don't do that." But I could be wrong. The worst thing that could happen is she vomits a little and hopefully that will really make her stop doing it.

Oh- if she's 1, like I said, I think it's really, really common for kids to do this around this age. My daughter did, and we just ignored it. I think acknowledging that it's happening and making a big deal of it can make it turn into an attention seeking behavior.

Sounds like she discovered a new trick, and she probably sees it gets a reaction from you. I too would say ignore it.

I had a kid that was a head banger. She would hit her head on the wall, and the doc said ignore it and just don't let her do it on something dangerous, like the sidewalk or in the bathtub.

She stopped when she noticed I didn't pay attention to it.
