throwing up
An_248980 posted:
hi my daughter is almost 11 months old and for the past few months i have noticed her shoving her fingers down her throat after each meal and throwing up. ever since she was born she had issues with excessive spit up and we switched her formula but for the past 3-4 months she continously she makes herself sick after meals. I was just wondering what could be the cause for this?

Hi Anon -

While waiting for others to reply I wanted to let you know you are not alone. See this discussion - Ten month old gags herself

I remember my nephew doing something similar. My sister would react and he would continue to gag himself just to get her reaction!
