Diarrhea, Vomiting: Hello Annie127. There are no specific treatments for vomiting and diarrhea in babies. The most important thing is keeping your baby well hydrated. We do not recommend antidiarrheals such as Imodium in babies or kids. Because he is little, I recommend speaking with your Pediatrician to further check his hydration. For consults, my direct link is healthtap.com/vanessanealmd with key code PNYTKV. ...Read more

May be related: If she had the nose bleed before she coughed then the blood could have come from the nosebleed. If she has no lung problems, no fever and no other medical conditions then coughing up blood is not common in children and mostly related to bleeding in the nose or throat- if concerned it is always best to be seen by your doctor! ...Read more
