Truthfully i actually choke on my juice multiple times a week. Iv noticed it doesnt seem to be the norm though but i will actually be completely choking over a sip of water.
My son has speech delay and he was tested for something called a submuchosal palate and i remember her asking if he choked alot. Its usually found around this age but it is very likely a speech delay would be alongside the choking.

Yeah I had her checked for one when she was tiny, just before we discovered her tongue tie. We paid a stupid amount to see a private paediatrician because I was so sure she was tongue tied and thought this woman would be able to tell me. Instead, she told me posterior tongue ties don't exist, which wasn't helpful, but I did get her to thoroughly check my daughter's mouth for a submucosal cleft. She had a good look with her torch and didn't find anything.

I think if that was the case, the coughing would happen to my LO much more and much worse than it does. She'd also likely have, as you say, problems with speech and a hypernasal voice, but she doesn't have either.

Have you always choked or is it a new thing?

Unless you have had pneumonia or chest infections a lot it's unlikely anything is reaching your lungs or posing a threat to your health! That is quite unusual though, I can't think what the reason for it would be!

Emma has always coughed and spluttered on liquids, so did I as a baby and toddler. She's also been way more 'gaggy' with foods and was the only one of my kids to spit up as a baby.

It doesn't bother me at all now as I am used to it, but other people are all "OMG is she OK ooohh pat her back she's choking" which gets annoying.

I just figured it was one of her unique quirks.

The first time it happened with a sippy cup as a baby, she was so put off she refused anything other than boon until she was 13 months! She loves water now but still almost always coughs with it.

God yes, I hate the staring when it happens and we are out! Thankfully it's so much less now than when she was Emma's age. It's so helpful for me to hear these stories, because even though a lot of the children in question are younger than mine, I have literally never seen another child choke on water or a drink. Even kids who are clearly much younger than mine seem to be super drinking pros around here?! It's so reassuring to hear about others who have passed the age where they are supposed to stop doing it, but still haven't stopped doing it. Plus all you lovely mums who aren't worried are basically my idols right now. I'm really going to try to just get over it - I should have asked on here years ago.

Sophie is 5 and coughs on water about once every couple of days too, now that I think about it! It is good to know it happens to others.

That is incredibly comforting to know!! In a weird sort of way.
