Hello Tammara,

Thank you for your questions and concerns. Swallowing vomit is not harmful. Especially when it is not in large quantities. If this is the first time he is ill, then he does not understand to actually allow the vomit to come out of his mouth. Toddlers cannot get the hang of how to vomit. Their first instinct is to swallow.

Just talk to him and explain to him to just let it come out and try not to swallow it. He will get the hang of it soon. I wish you well and hope he feels better....:0)

Blessings!
