Drugs known as controllers are used to prevent asthma attacks. These include inhaled steroids, which can help reduce inflammation and swelling and prevent your baby from wheezing. You would give your baby daily inhaled steroid medicine using either an MDI or a nebulizer, depending on the steroid prescribed by his doctor.

If your baby's asthma proves difficult to control, his doctor may refer him to an asthma specialist.

You'll want to make sure that any sitters or daycare providers responsible for your baby's care are familiar with his condition and know how to treat an asthma attack.
