Anyone got DC's that are coughing so much they're vomiting?

We've had both of ours being sick from coughing. Anyone had same problem? Can give DC1 Ipecac but DS2 is too young for anything other than simple cough syrupsad. Actually he's 1.7, would you give him something only for 2+??

Have managed to hide Medised in the fruit pots tonight and am NOT giving them any dairy products. I don't relish the thought of waking up to puky beds again <boak>

Ah much sympathy from the Baileys house... DS1 was doing this for alot of last winter.. it was really a case of sitting it out sadly!

and am not sure if I would give 2 year old medicine to a 1.7 which med is it?

My DS1 now 11.6 still vomits with coughing. He does have a brown and blue inhaler which do help, but sometimes he has not control over it.

Both mine do this every time they get a cough and cold (2.6 and 7 months). Infuriating isn't it. I've never given anything other than occasional Calpol for the coldy snotty side of things. A big fleece blanket by the side of the bed saves the carpet. I also put a soft rubber waterproof under the sheet to save the mattress.

Actually I am usually pleased when DD vomits as it is usually a sign that she is nearly over it.
She always has this when she gets coughs/asthma

<waves at pagwatch>, remember the bearded lady thread??!!

Have tried the chopped onion thing too but they're both still coughing away like crazy. Poor beans! Off to the Dr on Monday then I reckon.
