Coughing, colds, and vomiting in infants can be many possible causes, including allergies, viral infections, bacterial infections, aspirations (choking), irritation of the digestive tract or respiratory tract, and so on. The handling of these complaints can certainly be different, depending on the underlying cause. As a result of these complaints, it is not uncommon for babies to be more fussy, have trouble sleeping, decrease their appetite, and make mothers very worried.
If you have ever checked your baby to the doctor, then the steps you take are actually right. However, if after taking the drug for 3 days your baby does not also show a significant change, you should check it back to the doctor or pediatrician. You need to do this examination more quickly if you notice danger signs, such as tightness, bluish lips, rapid breathing, decreased consciousness, massive vomiting (more than 10 times a day), and signs of dehydration (sunken eyes, skin test is slow enough, lips dry, urinate slightly). By getting your baby checked early, then handling can be done faster and the healing potential is even greater.
At this time, you can do the following:
Feed your baby breast milk Try not to use a pacifier or breastfeed your baby while lying down Keep your baby from exposure to cold air, smoke, dust, and also pollution Use a humidifier to keep the air in your place of residence dry. Avoid using air conditioning or excessive fans Keep your baby from cigarettes and the smoke Do not carelessly give the baby Medication in the sun in the morning sun (before 9 o'clock) so that the phlegm in the airways melts. Hope it helps.
