Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the lungs and airways — the tubes that bring air into and out of the lungs. If your baby has asthma, these airways are irritated and swollen, and this can affect his ability to breathe.

It's important that you work with your baby's healthcare provider to prevent and treat asthma attacks. With the right medications, education, an asthma action plan, and regular medical follow-up, most asthmatic children do just fine.
