Is it idiomatic to use an infinitive after a gerund? For example:

  1. Stop trying to impress others.

  2. Stop trying to please everyone.

Can we use an infinitive after gerund?

Is it grammatically normal?

It is normal. If you use 'google books' for search ( with 'stop-trying-to' as a key phrase), you'll even find many results in book titles.
