My 2 1/2 yr old kid vomit the whole thing from inside when he coughs and it has became the habbit for him,the doctors say he should be given anti vomiting medicine before we feed him in case he stars coughing but i think always medicines not good for him so any other way you here can justify ?

my 2 1/2yo also does it when she has a cough and i don´t think its possible to stop them from vomiting. when i am lucky i will be able to catch her before she does and still be able to bring her in the washbasin -but mostly, it comes unexpected and had to clean the carpet or to change her bedclothes and clothing. when i am feeding her during these times, i have a small pail near me just in case. otherwise, when the cough is away this problem will also go away. for childrens cough and colds i have always a cough syrup and a vapor rub at home. wish you luck...

I think you need to find out the reason why he is coughing so much and deal with that problem. In any case, he has to keep his food down to get his vitamins and nutrients. I would do as the doctor said to take the anti-vomiting medication for the time being so he can eat and receive his nutrition. If he doesn't it will make him much worse. But you really need to find out why he is vomiting, what is the cause? Then fix that!
