My son was given Albuterol and Pulmicort for breathing treatments, he's only 15 months old. I've tried giving him the treatments but he keeps fighting me every step of the way... sometimes he'll try to chew on the end that goes in his mouth, which is OK cause then he still gets the medicine in his lungs. but most of the time he's trying to wiggle and squirm away from it. i know its not the sound of the machine that is bothering him because i can vacuum with him right in the room with me. can anyone help me in figuring out an easier way of giving the treatments?Answer Question
Is there something that he is fascinated with? Maybe a train, a tv show, certain music? If so, I would try to get his attention on something while you gave him the breathing treatment.

Oh, okay, I thought you were holding the mask. That is what the doctor told me to do. Just hold it over his mouth/nose and play with some blocks or something to pass the time.
