Is it normal that my 22 month old daugther cries to the point where she makes herself throws up?

  • Normal for a kid who throws fits. Yeah. She is probably just stubborn. Teach her to use it for good and not evil...And brace yourself for the teenage years.

  • I would discuss this with the pediatrician. I thought it was normal too. Only one of my children did it. He is now eleven and dealing with sensory integration dysfunction. I wish I would have recognized the signs earlier. Look into that. HTH GOOD LUCK!

  • My mom said that I used to do that very thing when I was this age. My son has never done this, but I have heard from other moms that their kiddos do the same thing. Maybe just try to see what triggers that type of frustration and do your best to avoid it? I wish you much luck!

  • I think it can be normal, but I would still discuss it with your childs doctor. My 22 month old will do that sometimes, and although I think it stems from her being strong willed she also has extreame allergies and sometimes she has reactions to food that make her act in odd ways. We are still doing testing to find out what foods cause her to go crazy, instead of breaking into hives and having an asthma attack.

  • I think it is pretty normal, too. I know if I have a good cry, it makes my stomach upset. If you are too worried, talk to your child's doctor about it.
    I think my mom said I did this sometimes, too.
