When a person coughs, both an adult and a child, the stomach pressure will increase for a few moments. When the body is lying down or lying down, the digestive tract and oral cavity will tend to be parallel, if there is a cough, the increased pressure in the stomach will cause vomiting more easily than when in a non-sleeping position.
So the problem your child is experiencing is probably the result of his cough, the cause of cough in an 18 month old child can be caused by
Upper respiratory tract infection Exposure to dust and / or cigarette smoke Asthma Bronchitis Pneumonia However, Irwin should not immediately worry too much, because the above conditions are limited to what can cause coughing in children. So it could be that what your child is experiencing is different. To make sure Irwin is advised to have his child checked by a pediatrician directly, so that he can do a medical examination such as listening to lung sounds, checking vital signs, and if necessary laboratory tests or x-rays may be needed.
Suggestions for you are to maintain cleanliness, especially places where children spend more of their time, so that dust exposure can be minimized and don't smoke around children. Keep your child away from people who have a cough or cold, because these conditions tend to be contagious. After the child eats or drinks it should not be left in a position with the head parallel to the stomach, so if the child is sound asleep, position it so that the head is higher or for example, in a sitting position
