That is pretty normal. ...Read more

Every night for the past 2 weeks at 2 or 3 my 12 mo old throws up from dry cough! How and why's this happening? What can I do to help her?

Every night for the past 2 weeks at 2 or 3 my 12 mo old throws up from dry cough! How and why's this happening? What can I do to help her?

May be a few things: This could be from inflamed airways in the chest, either due to a viral infection (called bronchiolitis) or early-onset asthma. If she has eczema or if there are allergies or asthma in the family, i'd consider this. It is possible, but less likely, that this is backwash of stomach acid ("reflux"). Finally, it could actually be whooping cough ("pertussus") or a related infection. See her doc. ...Read more

11 month old continues to cough after RSV has cleared. Teething or something RSV related? Sometimes she coughs so much she throws up.

Common: Infants who have RSV bronchiolitis will often cough intermittently for at least a month after the primary infection. They will also cough more with irritant exposures to dust/fragrance/smoke/etc. For the next year they can wheeze on occasion with minor colds. As long as baby is eating and playful it is likely okay. If the kid starts refusing feeds or to play they deserve a followup exam. ...Read more

I've been coughing for 3 weeks now and whenever I lay down or cough a lot I throw up green stuff. Is it just because I'm coughing to much I throw up?

Post-tussive emesis: What you are describing is called post-tussive emesis (=after coughing vomiting). It is a common phenomenon where you cough so much you trigger your gag reflex which then causes you to throw up. If you have vomiting when you lie down, most likely you are having some intense post-nasal drip running down your throat causing you to vomit. I would see a doc if things aren't getting better for you. ...Read more

My 18month old always throw up when she cries, in the middle of her tantrums she cries & scream like crazy if I say no! She cries cough & throw up;why?

Positive or negative: Attention reinforces behaviors. Consistently ignoring behaviors makes them stop after 1st getting worse. When she tantrums, carry her from behind to a time-out spot on a washable surface. Don't talk, make eye contract or act upset. Repeat till she stays put. Set a timer for 1 ½ minutes, then carry her from behind to where it started & talk to her calmly. Buy Little People for $12 on Amazon. ...Read more
