While dealing with asthma can seem challenging at any age, the younger age groups — infants, toddlers, and preschoolers — can seem more demanding because of their limited ability to speak and difficulties monitoring their breathing. Studies have shown this group is more at risk for respiratory failure. Even if you have cared for a child with asthma before — or if you've had asthma yourself — you may be apprehensive. This is not uncommon. Just remember it's good that you detected your child's asthma now so you can begin treatment as soon as possible.
