I have no idea why, but my 11 mth old gags himself? Sometimes randomly to see our reaction (he laughs when we tell him it's not okay to do it) or when he's upset he gags himself. Anyone know why he would be doing this?

  • I think it is an attention thing. My cousin use to hold his breath till her turned blue and pass out, and I toddler I worked with did this also. Both doctors (30 years apart in cousin and kids age) both said it was an attention thing.
