if you have astma then it is not definite that your baby will be asthmatic also.

There is no need to use inhalers in the baby if she is well.

if she has cough or cold, see a doctor as it is too early for the baby to have asthma symptoms and the most common cause of cough in young babies is a viral infection.

when she is more than 2 years old and has asthma symptoms then the inhalers may be given at that stage.
