Just check if your child isn't suffering from GER or Gastro-oesophageal reflux in which acidic contents of stomach get refluxed into food pipe which may, in turn, trigger symptoms like your child is suffering from.
To prevent that, don't give her hot or spicy foods, you can make head-end of her bed raised and if still it doesn't improve, she may be given medications to treat same. Thanks.
