  • I don't think you should give her honey, esp if she was a preemie, and if she has never had it before, I think you need to go and see her doctor.

  • Sounds like an ongoing, mild asthma attack. You should be calling her doctor ans asking for some advice. He/she may want you to bring her in for an in-office nebulizer treatment.

  • Cough medicine doesn't help an asthmatic cough. She needs asthma medication like albuterol or singulair. Talk to your doctor.

  • If she has mild asthma she should have an albuterol inhaler, use it. If you are giving it every 4 hours you need to go to the doctor. Cold medicine isn't going to do anything for an asthma attack.

  • Take her to the hospital for a breathing treatment and nebulizer.
