Dd has been diagnosed.
Past few nights her coughing is terrible. We are trialing just ventolin at this stage. Tonight she woke up but resettled before I went back in.
Should I be waking up to give her ventolin?

If I happen to go past DD's room and her breathing is really bad, yes I wake her. She is older though and takes her inhaler no problems and then falls back to sleep. Would your DD wake nicely for ventolin or would she be miserable and crying? If it's the latter I would probably leave her but go back in at the first sign of her stirring, ie I would be too nervous to leave them longer than a few minutes, I'd probably hang around waiting for her to stir.
When you say she resettled, how is her asthma when she's asleep? If she sounds ok I'd leave her. My DD's main symptom is wheezing. So if she were to be asleep and be asthmary, she would be wheezing terribly and working really hard just to breathe, so of course I am going to wake her up.

We use a silicon mask on the end of the spacer so if dd 2.5yrs is sleeping we can still give her ventolin without waking her up. You can get them at the chemist. They are pretty cheap and works well for us

I got his mask from the chemist but you can also order them online from the Asthma foundation with a matching spacer if getting to a chemist is hard.

We used a nebuliser with ds2, but if he was wheezing we would wake him.
