Thank you for the query.

Upper respiratory tract is usually due to viral infection. However if it lasts long enough, it can become bacterial infection. In such case antibiotics are necessary. Moreover, if no other symptoms like fever is present, it might be an asthma (it causes spasms).
Sometimes spasm can be also caused by larynx inflammation what can be life threatening.
And as we are talking about 1 year old child there is a lot of risk neglecting such symptoms. Therefore you should visit your doctor and he should decide about the reason of symptoms and the type of therapy.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
