    Unhappy Forced Vomiting :(

    My son 21 months, force vomits every night now. Pretty sure it is to get attention as it only happens at bed time for the most part now.

    How can I stop this its driving us crazy and not good for DS!

    I think my partner is about to have a mental breakdown from stress

    What is his bedtime routine? Is there something you can change to make it less stressful for him at that time??

    Oh dear, doesn't sound good for anyone.

    If it's only happening at bedtime, what is the routine for early evening and bedtime? Does it need a tweak perhaps?

    Do you lie down with him in bed? Can you maybe try to lie down with him until he falls asleep?

    DS2 will vomit on cue if you asked him. What he used to do is vomit when he didnt want any more dinner. It's the most frustrating thing ever as all of a sudden he does this coughing thing and he vomits.

    Basically now I keep an eye on his 'trigger'...so knowing when he will be too full and telling him to stop eating before he thinks he should be sick.

    Does your ds have a trigger? Something that you know that will set him off to make himself vomit?

    So when is he vomiting? When you leave the room? What have you been doing when he does vomit?

    He has his own room and cot has from day 1.

    We stay in there with him until he is almost asleep.

    We put him into bed and he will scream and throw up very quickly. If we hold him he is fine.

    We is excited to go to bed and will walk to his room with his bedtime things himself then it starts....

    No idea what his trigger is.....

    After he is in his cot. usually we are trying to console him while in his cot or reading him a story to help calm him

    Ahhhh ok, he's still in a cot. Is there a particular reason why he is still in a cot? Do you think putting him in a big boy bed might rock his world and distract him and stop him from vomiting?

    I mean, it is just a suggestion. I am not saying that having him in a cot at this age is wrong, I just thought that a major change like that, might distract him.
    Have you otherwise tried to call Tresillian or spoken to a CHN about it? They might have some tips as well.
