Why does my 2 month old stretch until she makes herself ill and how can we break her of the habit?


When she was about a month, she started stretching when we woke her up for a diaper change & food. It became more frequent & intense to the point that she makes herself sick to her stomach! We thought it was because she had gas or was hungry. Sometimes these things were true, but not always. Someone suggested that it was just for attention and to ignore her, but she continues until she gets sick. Sometimes she stops when we pick her up, but other times she won't. There doesn't seem to a single cause and we don't know how to stop her from doing this. Anyone have experience with this?
