    How is his breathing? Lift his shirt up and if you can see him really sucking in for a breath that is a sign and around his collar bone is another sign. Not very good at describing it sorry!

    Eek. Making me think I may not have been paying good enough attention now! There's asthma in the family as well. I'll try 6 puffs and see how he goes after that. My mum is coming around this morning. Hopefully she remembers what my brother was like and can help. He's still coughing on and off 😞 his breathing seems fine. I thought maybe the house was too cold so blasted the heater but it hasn't helped (only made me really hot haha)

    I was completly oblivious to begin with until i took ds to the dr and they pointed out all the signs to me. Now that i have seen him at his worse I just jump onto it straight away.

    Abother sign my ds gets is a clear runny nose.
    Im guessing he has a spacer with his puffer? I sit ds on my lap with his back against my chest to give it to him and this doesnt freak him out as much

    Thanks Purple Poppy. I haven't really dealt with it so its all a bit strange! I was looking at his breathing and he thought it was funny to suck his belly in and be silly lol

    I say him on my lap with cartoons lol he sat still and took his breaths. Usually he stuffs around pulling the mask off and trying to spit in it 😡 gross! He doesn't seem to mind it. Isn't scared, just silly.

    My daughter uses a spacer specifically for kids. For it to work properly she has to breath in properly, so stuffing around not possible. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1463184836.311477.jpg

    I managed to get him to take his puffer before bed. Gave him honey and he's coughing so bad he's awake already. By the time he fell asleep he was awake. I'm trying to get him to fall asleep but the coughing keeps going. I was hoping to at least rest a bit while he slept and that didn't happen. Didn't even get to eat 😞 he's upset because he's so tired but he can't sleep. He won't sleep on the lounge with me or in bed with me. All too much fun. 😔

    Could it be a nasal drip causing the coughing? My friends DS suffered badly with this as it caused coughing every time he lay down.

    How do you tell? If u can lol He's coughing a little when he is walking around but it's a lot worse when he's laying down. It sounds like a dry cough. He's had about half hour sleep and he next to nothing over night so he's just feral.

    Absolutely no idea! Her paediatrician picked it up (her DS also had asthma).

    Ah! That's fair enough haha. I think I will have to try and get him to the doctor during the week if he's not improving.
