Dont really have a question about parenting just a Child health question.. But my 5 year old daughter is always clearing her throat after eating. I never really paid much attetion to this untill lately. She doesnt have any breathing problems or asthma or anyother health issues. Is this normal? Its not just once or twice its for at least a hour. it doesnt seem to bother her (she never says anything about it) other than shes constaly clearing her throat..
Its hard to say ........ but maybe this started with her not liking the feeling in her throat after she's done eating. Maybe there have been times when she thinks there is food still stuck there and she has started a routine of clearing her throat?
I have a nephew who would do this all the time especially when he was sitting well should I say just not being too active. Usually when he was watching t.v or playing video games. He also would repeat himself sometimes and as he got older (around 9) it got worse well he has torets and this was a "tick" the doctor called it. I use to babysit my nephew for 3 years and when he is with me I do not allow a lot of t.v time and notice he doesnt have his ticks too bad when he is active.
