    hi,
    looks like u r forcing ur son to eat. Thats why he has started the habit of vomiting. Also give him all those food which he likes and give those food which you want him to eat in the way he likes. If he wants the fruits in the form of juice give him in that way you can add milk and make it milk shake too. That is way you can make him eat. Vomiting is just an act of showing his distress. So dont worry, also take time to give him food. Dont put the food in plate and make him eat. You sit with him and if he wants you can even feed him. dont worry he will overcome the habit.

    Re: how to control vomiting

    Thankyou very much for ur reply..I do force him a little bit not always..it's not like i forcefully feed him and after that he vomits..sometimes he vomits his favourite food also.ie.friuts like strawberries,blackberries ,watermelon,apple..etc.this is the only food he'll eat on his own.rest of it i have to do it..it will take minimum 2 hrs to feed him a little bit..he will keep 1 spoon of rice for 20-30 min in his mouth..thats how he eats..daily 6 hrs i spent to feed him..As i mentioned he is really raelly picky.. He don't like any ceraels, shakes,icecream,choclate,cakesor any snaks ..all he eats is chicken,fish(basa),plane rice,pasta ..he'll take olny few bites.In the morning he take like 5-6 ounces of whole milk ..about juicehe only drinks orange juice..he can stand a whole day without food..

    Re: how to control vomiting

    Hi,

    I too had the same problem with my daughter. She used to daily vomit out if i force her to eat anything. She too is a picky eater.

    The thing i did now with her is, i noticed that she is very fond of watching tv (mostly cartoons and tv ads). So when i served her food, i see that the tv is off. I tell i will put it on only after she eats her food. Also i do is, i trick her, by adding more food then she will eat in her plate, then i say ok i will remove some from her plate, that way she feels like she is given less now. Like if i want her to eat 1 whole chappati, i first give her 2 and then remove one.

    The other thing i do is, i tell her i will take her out only after she finishes eating her food, i even bring out her outgoing dress and shoes. Then i do take her out even like going to a shop, after she eats.

    It is very important to gv kids in less qty and also after a period of every two hours something to eat. You can give while he is playing or busy with his tv, a small piece of any food in his mouth.

    Many parents want to feed kids proper food at lunch/dinner time, just like grown ups. I dont do so with my kids. I only keep a track of the time she eats and see that she has eaten something every two hours.

    As i know my kid is fond of adds in tv, i bring things what they show on ads to eat, and show her how the kid on tv is eating, so she also eats now.

    You can try out as what i hv written and see how things go on.
    All the best:2thumbsup:

    Re: how to control vomiting

    hi friends,
    In naturopathy we check whether solar plexus is in proper place before any treatment
    SOLAR PLEXUS is imaginary chakra situated near navel..IT is like Fulcrum of body..if body is not in balance nothing will work..ask senior folks ..it is a very indian thing..read all yoga teachers will tell u....sometimes in hyper children due to excessive crying or physical activity it shifts leading to feeling of nausea etc..& we blame the child
    Myself i have seen results .. with practical exp & this is not humbug>.read for uneducated
    To correct easiest remedy is (there r many) tie black thick tread..thicker than normal stiching.3-4 rotations :goodidea: .on both big toes..thread should be comfortable & not 2 tight or loose to slip off ..keep it for 3-4 days & write to me about result
    works for adults too..try it is not superstition..becoz even I think rationally
