Hello Novry, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand the concerns that you feel.
Colds are most often caused by viral infections. Symptoms that are caused also vary from nasal congestion, runny / runny nose, fever, nausea, vomiting, and so on. Apart from this, colds also occur due to allergies, exposure to cold or dry air, and so on.
While vomiting in normal infants occurs at 4-5 months, known as spit up. But these habits will come with increasing age. Some other things can cause vomiting in children between:
Too much eating / drinking
Milk intolerance or other food
Milk allergy or other food
Stomach acid disorders
Gastrointestinal disorders such as gastroenteritis, and so on
To find out the cause of course must be examined directly by a pediatrician. That way the exact cause can be known and the handling will be appropriate and directed.
For now, all you can do is:
Give food and drink as usual
If breastfeeding, hold your head higher and leave it calm
Birkan bayu belch after breastfeeding
Give MPASI (side dishes) a little more dense but still age-appropriate so it is not easily spit out
Do not use clothes too tight on the baby
If vomiting accompanied by diarrhea give more fluid
In a COVID-19 pandemic like this it is really advisable to postpone seeing a doctor but if the symptoms that arise are emergency then still have to see a doctor immediately such as vomiting accompanied by diarrhea, shortness of breath, flatulence, or prominent crown to get further treatment. Stay alert when outside, wear a mask and avoid using public transportation whenever possible. Keep your distance from those around you and wash your hands regularly with soap and running water.
That's all, hope it helps.
