I've been doing the vaporizer, vapo-rub steam bath frustrating sick kid drill that the doctor told me to do, and I know these things just take time, etc... but tonight while I was feeding him dinner he started coughing and wound up gagging and vomiting up his food . I tried to feed him again 1 hour later and the same thing happened. I assume this is because his tummy was full and the cough unsettled everything, but should I be more concerned... like a bowel obstruction or something? I will take him back to the doctor on Monday if it continues, just wondering if anyone has had an experience like this? He has choked/thrown up during dinner before, like if he doesn't chew a teething biscuit all the way, etc. He's very active and completely fine-seeming in every way, and his bottle stayed put until I tried to top it off with solid food. At his last checkup the doctor said he was in great health and "definitely not starving".
