Thank you for your query,
Whenever cold is there, there are chances of getting nose bleed will be there.
When the bleeding occurs posteriorly children will swallow it it and because of stomach irritation by blood they will develop vomitings.
If there is still bleeding from the nostril, press and hold that side nostril till bleeding stops.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination and for the appropriate medication for cold and cough.
Hope I have answered your query.

Hi Sandra,'
Yes,you have to take her to the doctor if it is the first time.
The vomiting may be due to the blood from the nose trickling down the throat when she was sleeping.
Any way t is better to have a check up with the local doctor.
Good luck
God bless
