What to do if a child coughs and spit up milk

For first-time mothers, when encountering some emergencies, they will be in a hurry and don't know how to deal with the emergencies. Especially after the baby's health has problems, the mother is more nervous and doesn't know how to take care of it. For fear that improper care will affect the baby's health, what should I do if the child coughs and spit up milk? It is very common for babies to spit up when they cough. Moms should not panic. They should pick up the baby as soon as possible, and let the baby bow his head and spit out the vomit, so as to keep the airway open and avoid vomit entering the airway and causing suffocation. After helping your baby clean his mouth, you should also rinse your baby's mouth in time, and you can feed some warm water to get rid of the odor in the mouth. If the baby coughs and spit up milk during sleep, the mother can stand the baby up on the side and lie on the side to facilitate the discharge of vomit, which can reduce the chance of vomit entering the respiratory tract. Then use a clean towel to wipe the baby's mouth and do the follow-up cleaning work. The reason why the baby vomits easily when coughing is because the pressure in the abdominal cavity is large when coughing, and the stomach is squeezed. In order to prevent the baby from vomiting when coughing, the mother should not overeat the baby, and burp the baby after feeding, and let the baby lie down after ten minutes, which can reduce the phenomenon of spitting up.
