  • there was a boy at a daycare that i worked at who would do it when he got mad. like when he wanted out of the high chair or swing. he'd do it so much it'd make him throw up. we tried ignoring it (thats when it got to the throwing up stage) so when he'd start doing it we'd just take his hands out of his mouth and try distracting him with something else. but its just a new trick he's learned, nothing to stress about.
