Hello Anggi, thank you for asking.
In babies who experience cough colds, babies often experience shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. This is in addition to being an effect of the infection he is experiencing, also due to the baby being unable to expel his phlegm. This causes the mucus produced in the respiratory tract to be swallowed and carried into the stomach and intestines. That's why babies often vomit slimy.
Indeed, not all babies can withstand the unpleasant taste of the drug, so the baby becomes nauseous and vomiting, just as there are adults who can not resist the bitter taste of the drug. If after you give the medicine, then not long after the baby vomits, then the possibility of the drug has not been digested and absorbed. You can try giving the medicine that you are vomiting again. If after several attempts your baby is still unable to swallow the medicine, you should consult again with the treating pediatrician. Tell your problem in detail so that the doctor can take the right steps. Chances are the doctor will change the prescription or adjust the dosage. Please be careful when giving medicine, if the child looks almost choked, stop giving the drug first, after the child is calm, continue giving the drug slowly.
Thus the information from me, I hope you get the benefit. Regards.
