She won't stop gagging herself!
October 6, 2012 at 10:20 PM

My daughter is 3 1/2 months and is getting her first 2 teeth (at the same time). She can't really hold a teether and she refuses pacifiers. So she chews on her fingers. I can't keep them out of her mouth for longer than a minute. The problem is, she sticks 2 or 3 fingers in her mouth at a time and gags herself. She's constantly puking up her formula because she shoves her fingers down her throat. I don't know what to do to keep her hands out of her mouth. Is this normal? It can't be. It really worries me. I don't know what to do. Or if there's anything I *can* do. I'm lost.

    Its normal for babies and even toddlers to gag themselves, try giving her a cold wash rag or just a blanket might work, if you put them over her hands it might help her from not gagging. Obviously just keep an eye on her when doing this

    Tylenol might help with the pain so that she need to chew on herself as much. I agree with the cold wash cloth too.
