When do you take a baby in for vomiting?
I felt her soft spot and its not sunken in, yet. Bit she is six months an has diarrhea and anytime she has a coughing fit she vomits.

Right now my kids are being treated for pertussis, not sure they have it, but they have been tested and are on meds for it just in case.
All the doc said was to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated and doesn't have any difficulty breathing.

is she wetting diapers?
tears when she cries?
she only vomits if the cough gets her going?

if yes I would say she is ok and keep an eye.

any questions or hesitation take her in or call her dr.

Would they do anything where she isn't dehydrated yet?

IDK. But I don't wait until it's the worst case senerio, it's better to get her better now.

 6 months is young. My baby is 5.5 months old and if he was vomiting and had diarrhea we'd be at the ER.

I'd also take him in for a fever. I wouldn't mess around when it comes to an infant.

It's different once they reach 12-18 months, I think.

so shes been to the doctor for this already? When? How many days is she supposed to take the medicine? Did she do this caughingvomiting thing when you went to the prediatrician? Did they tell you anything? Or is it now just getting worse? I would say when in doubt its better to make one trip to many to the Doctors than one too less.
