    Default Ventolin advice

    For those of you with younger kids in daycare/Kindy who have asthma or use ventolin, do you send the spacer and ventolin with your child on the days they go and bring it home each time or do you have a specific spacer and inhaler that stays at the Centre?

    Edit to add-
    She goes 2 days 1 week, 3 the next. No action plan until follow up appt in 5-6 weeks. Dr advised giving ventolin as needed during the day between now and then though so trying to work out whether I will need to buy another spacer or just send the one I have on the days she goes.

    I started to take it and bring it home but thought if i forget to get it one afternoon and he needed it that night we would have a problem so I got another spacer and puffer with his name all over it and in a Ziplock bag that way I didnt have to worry about it

    We purchased a spacer and inhaler that stayed at daycare and now at school. I also carry one in my handbag so we don't get caught out.

    Thanks all. Looks like it’s easier to just get another and leave there. We were given 2 inhalers but only one spacer so will grab another. This is all new to me- never even considered she may have asthma.

    Not sure what her triggers are but you will start to notice little signs of when they may get a flare up.
    My ds now cant have grapes/sultanas as they trigger his asthma
    He also gets a clear runny nose a day or so before the cough starts up.
    The asthma website is great for any information

    Default Ventolin advice

    My DD has a spacer and puffer that stay at Daycare, I had to fill out a form to authorise them to administer it when needed, but when her asthma is flared up I always verbally tell them at drop off her asthma is playing up today she might need some ventolin. She has another set at Kindy that stays in the classroom (school policy) and a third one at home.
    ETA: we usually know when DD will need her puffer as her asthma only flares up after an upper respiratory tract virus.

    I work in childcare and we require parents to leave puffers and spacers with us (so they dont accidentally get left at home). We have the action plan in with the medication in a secure cupboard.

    Thanks all. Spoke to her lead educator/director and without a letter from the dr they can’t give it to her. So until I can get one, they will just call me to come in and give it to her myself if needed.
