Dd will be 1 year in 2 weeks, she has always been fine with food and loves trying different foods. But in the last 2 weeks she's started choking gagging and being sick. This is on bannana, sandwiches, organix biscuits, grapes etc. It's almost like shes forgotten how to eat.
Is this normal? What should I do?
I'm posting this after a traumatic snack time where she started choking on a chewed biscuit (it wasn't too much for her mouth) I had to interviene and scoop it out, she then threw up and was very upset. She calmed down and had some bannana and did the same thing. She's been refusing all food since and I'm just about to try her with some pizza for lunch. I'm trying to be relaxed so she's not picking up anxietys from me but im quite worried about her.
Also it could be a problem with her tonsils, my step son has a similar problem and it turned out that his tonsils were too big (he would gag on meat ect and had to chew things for longer in order to swallow), he had his tosils taken out and was then fine.
She finished her bottle she just kept spluttering it. Her breathing seems fine, and she's gone to sleep easy enough. She doesn't have a temp or any other symptoms of being ill. I'll keep an eye on her tonight and get her a Dr appointment first thing tomorrow unless she gets worse tonight.
dd does this, but she has always done it a bit, she doesnt really do it with her milk anymore but is terrible with food. iahve had her checked out by the dr and she is fine just has a strong gag reflex.
struggling with her milk would worry me but is she maybe getting a cold, a bit snuffly, or a sore throat, then maybe drinking the milk is irritating her like a tickly cough maybe.
if she does it again you could always try a slower flow teat to see if that helps?
She's the same this morning, had a few problems with her milk during the night, then she was reluctant to eat her breakfast then completly refused after choking again.
I rang the sugery and the dr called me back (its how its done here, you cant get appointments just a call back and they fit you in if they decide they want to see you) dr said 'she's probably feeling ill or something, she should be fine' he didn't want to see her and he wasn't really intrested in what I was saying. The words probably and should have filled me with lots of confidence! If she develops anymore symptoms or it hasn't got better by Monday I'll kick up a huge fuss and get her seen by someone.
