Can't Kick the Congestion

My daughter had RSV back in January and then Feb 14 I brought her back in because her hacking persisted and temperature spiked back up again.

10 Month Old with Sensitive Gag Reflex and Vomiting When Coughing

My 10 month old has a very sensitive gag reflex and throws up very easily when he coughs. Ever since he was an infant, if he drank too fast and I didn't burp him often, he would throw-up, projectile vomit. I would burp him often to control the vomiting. Now that he's 10 mos old and eating solids, if he has a cold or upper respiratory infection, he cannot move the mucus in his throat, so he vomits sometimes when he coughs. Last night I slept in his room and he threw up in the night. I am afraid he will do it again and choke on his vomit...
