  • He has probably just discovered something new. Don't show him too much attention over it and he will stop.

  • I would keep him in a area that is easy to clean so that if he does vomit then it is easier to clean it up. I would try to ignore the behavior and don't make a big deal out of it or the clean up process because if you almost ignore it then it will go away in time.

  • Often this is an attention getting tactic. I remember when my oldest did that. When he got my reaction, he would laugh. So, I just stopped paying attention to it. Of course only when he wasnt eating.. where he could actually be choking on something. But in general, after ignoring it.. he stopped in about a week.
