When baby learns to throw up foods she doesn't like


Ok now this is new for me. My older kid and slew of nephews and nieces didn't do this and I have been known to brew up some pretty nasty tasting but super healthy blends but my youngest (8 months) has learnt to throw up on demand!!! Once you put anything she doesn't like (which yesterday included Gerber baby cereal that she's been eating for months) she throws up!!! I rushed her to hospital when she first started her 'neat' trick last week and we went through tests to confirm nothing was wrong until I noticed she was doing it on purpose!!! Anyone else experience this? What did you do to get them to quit? She only wants milk, strawberry, apple and spinach puree. Kids today smh.

My oldest did this. All. The. Time. Started around 1 and stopped around 20 months. She'd do it anytime she was mad at me and didn't want to do what I was trying to get her to do - eat something she didn't want, nap time, leaving a place she wanted to stay. It's awful. Around 20 months she did it at nap time(AGAIN!), so I handed her a clean cloth and told her that was naughty and made mommy sad and that she had to clean her mess this time. I helped her, but she never did it again. There's nothing wrong with the kids, just some sort of horrifying way of letting you know just how they feel. This too shall pass.

O my! I hope it passes real soon. She's driving me batty right now. Thanks Kristine.
