18mnth old

Hi doc!
My 18month old boy has a dry cough at night and morning since last week. He just fell asleep sunday night, started coughing then he vomit. Vomit monday morning before bottle and now again today. He has no temperature, he plays as normal, but noticed that he does not eat, he doesnt want anything we give, but his bottle, fruit and yoghurt. Is this just a phase with the eating, or shall i give something to increase the apetite. And what could the cause of the vomiting be?
Thanking you

This could be the first signs of whooping cough with your little boy.It is important to start treatment early as this illness may last for more than 3months otherwise.Please ask your doctor to see him and mention the possible diagnosis of whooping cough when you are there.

Sorry, another thing is, he''s extremely restless at night, sleeps well but tosses and turns constantly and farts quite a bit when sleeping too, must have a lot of winds, anything to be concerned about??
