  • Sound slike your little man has had a real tough start to life. Maybe you could ask your gp to refer to a peadriatric consultant for further advice. It is very unusual to be diagnosed asthmatic at 1 mth old, maybe docs need to run some tests to see why your son has so many infections.

    Hope things settle for you soon
