Dear Rekha, it is painful to see little babies suffer especially with repeated cold and cough. After you feed him, try an keep him upright for sometime for the milk to go down;avoid laying him down for atleast 15-20 mins and in the meantime he should burp. You may rub some vicks on those little feet and put socks on at night and during his nap times. This has helped both my children when they were babies. But please make sure you do not rub vicks on his chest or back, but only under his feet. If you see mucous with his vomit, then it is a good sign I would say as the cough is being expelled with his vomit. This will help in reducing the irritation in his throat. Also, try and keep a pillow under his head when he sleeps. This will help with congestion. Hope your little one feels better soon.

Hi Rekha, Children tend to vomit after a meal because of the collected mucus in the nose because of which they can't breathe properly. Steaming is a very effective technique it loosening the mucus and gradually expelling it. Twice a day, before nap-time, should help. ALso, before feeding, use saline-based nasal drops to open the passage of the nose so that the child can breathe through nose and not the mouth when he is eating. Hope your baby gets better soon.
