Q.

1year old vomiting

Hi Doc
Please help My little boy has been on Nido from about 11 1/2 months. Recently after every night feed he coughs and then vomits everything. Its especially when he lays down. Although he hasn' t been diagnosed with asthma, he does wheeze sometimes. The pead prescribed Atrovent and we also nebulize him with comnivent and saline.

I think its just the coughing that agravates it. What can I do to stop this as he ends up very irratable at night?

Thanks

Your baby has whooping cough not asthma. Please ask your paediatrician to treat him for whooping cough.
