Body is the body's response to the entry of foreign objects or inflammation of the airways. So that with coughing, it is expected that the airway is clean from foreign objects or inflammation that affects the airway. Some conditions that cause inflammation of the airways, can be caused by infection, choking, allergies, or due to airway irritation. Therefore, the cause of coughing needs to be ascertained, whether due to inflammation of the throat, lung infection, or due to other diseases such as indigestion accompanied by cough.
If the cough is accompanied by complaints of nausea and vomiting, or it may also be accompanied by complaints of fever, then the discharge of bodily fluids from vomiting when coughing will be at risk of causing the patient's physical condition to easily decline, especially if it occurs in infants. This is due to bodily fluids that come out to interfere with the smoothness of the circulatory system and the patient's digestive system. Therefore, treatment as early as possible is expected to immediately restore the patient's condition.
In connection with your question, in the initial stages, complaints of coughing and vomiting can be compensated by the entry of breast milk in infants aged 3 months. However, if vomiting continues, even if the milk enters the baby's digestive tract, then only a small amount of liquid and nutrients can be absorbed by your baby. Therefore, if the vomiting complaint does not improve immediately then the risk of dehydration can occur. Therefore, during coughing and vomiting, you should give ASI little by little but often according to the ability of the stomach. If the vomiting complaint is gone, then you can increase the portion of breast milk again. If you force yourself to drink as much milk as possible directly, then when the baby coughs, it can ease the risk of repetitive vomiting.
So if this complaint is still disturbing, and the medicine given by the doctor has run out, then you should consult again with your doctor who treats you and provide further treatment that will be prescribed by a doctor. Thus, your baby's condition is getting better and recover soon.
