My son is 2 and was diagnosed with asthma a few days after his 2nd birthday, after having quite a bad asthma attack (had been suspected for a while but official diagnosis tile he had the attack).
We are really struggling to get him to take his daily steroid inhaler; we have both the little yellow spacer with the bears on and the bit clear one with the round mouthpiece. He hates both of them. We have tried putting stickers on the spacer, using a sticker chart, using the spacer on his toys, letting him handle it himself, explaining why he needs it... But it generally ends up that we have to hold him still to get him to have it (which results in us not really knowing if he is getting his full dosage) and is also very distressing for all of us, to the point that my husband and I dread the time we have to give it to him as we know how much it upsets him.
Please, does anyone have any suggestions, or did they go through anything similar with their children at this age? Will get it better as he gets older?
