Re: Nebulizer help

We do it while rocking and reading books. Sometimes we do it while watching Barney.

I promise it gets easier if you do it while kiddo is awake. The first time, my son cried so hard he puked IN the mask. But after a week, he got used to it, and it became routine. Now, at 3, he falls asleep doing it.

We did 5 albuterol and 2 pulmicorts a day at first. Gradually weaned to pulmicort only twice a day, and now most of the time, we are down to 1 pulmicort a day.
