What to do if asthma affects your child’s sleep at night

When it’s cold at night Salis’ asthma tends to get quite bad. He coughs and coughs quite a lot so that gets me up, it gets him up I tend to give him his blue reliever inhaler to help with his symptoms. But at the same time I have to prop him up with a few pillows and that actually helps him breathe a lot better. As soon as he lays down flat he has difficulty breathing and he just coughs and coughs again. I have to make sure that the bedroom temperature is quite constant when Salis is coughing throughout the night because if it’s too hot he can’t breathe and if it’s too cold he’s struggling so I’ve got to make sure it’s at that right temperature where he is actually comfortable.
