My almost 2-year-old has started coughing at nights, sometimes so hard he wretches, gags, and vomits. I am scared this is turning into asthma.
Besides avoiding his known food allergies and sensitivities, does anyone have advice as to what else we can do? I have spent the first 2 years of his life looking at foods and diets, and I have little experience dealing with environmental stuff.
He loves running around and playing. It recently rained heavily, which is great for those pollen sufferers, but bad for people sensitive to mold, like me, and I'm afraid my son.
I do hot water washes and dye/fragrance free everything. I should limit stuffed animals, I know.
Some people say more exercise is better for asthmatics---haven't looked into that at all yet. Anyone know about that? I remember the kids with asthma always being told not to overexert themselves...
Anyway, I am still wondering if maybe there is something else foodwise going on that I haven't uncovered yet. He's been having runny noses as well, so that could be food related...but the coughs worse at morning and night make me think environmental.
As always, thank you for any insight or thoughts. They are always much appreciated!!
