    Default Choking and vomiting

    Quick question, if someone chocked, are they likely to vomit afterwards?

    DS just vomited about 2 hours ago and I didn't see what happened as I was changing DS2's nappy. He was eating a sandwich and I heard him making weird noises and then trying to cry and I ran into the lounge and then he threw up.

    I then took him to the bathroom to get cleaned up and he threw up again.

    Would choking cause him to vomit? I am trying to figure out if it was choking or if he has gastro?

    It's possible getting his food caught in his throat triggered a gag reflex- it's possible he coughed or something while eating causing him to get his food caught. If he has gastro he's probably have other symptoms too.

    Because he had a second spew I'd be thinking gastro? The weird noises could have been him choking on his vomit as it was coming up? How is he acting now, does he still seem sick? I hope it's not gastro!

    He seems fine now and the 2nd vomit was within seconds of the first one. Probably like 10-15 seconds

    Maybe it was just choking then. If it was gastro you would think he would be pretty miserable.

    He also said 'too big' after he threw up, but he often says that when I'm feeding him dinner... So I don't know if something did get lodged or of he just didn't know how to explain what happened?

    He's only 3 at the end of this month

    If it was gastro he definitely wouldn't be eating a sandwich and my DD almost always vomits when she chokes. It's a way to clear the airways. I would say he's taken off too big a bite and chosen on it. Poor little guy and poor you. It's scary when it happens. I hope you're both ok now.

    He seems fine now, just fed him his dinner and he ate it all.

    Let's hope it's not gastro 'poor little giy
