 Toddlers have a habit of putting objects in their mouth and vomiting could occur as a result of ingesting harmful chemicals such as wild herbs, soaps, and detergents. These drugs irritate the lining of the stomach, causing the muscles to contract and the contents to be expelled. When a toddler ingests poisonous substances, he or she may vomit but show no other symptoms like fever or diarrhea.
