This sounds like the start of asthma. Typically asthma starts with a night cough at this age and with wheezing. Please ask your paediatrician to see her.

Hi there

been through the same thing

it turns out that when i had changed my babies formula to NIDO at 12 months - this had gotten worse.

what formula is she on?
could it be alergy related
could she just have bronchiolitis
a bad post nazel drip

my daughter suffered the same and was diagnosed with a type of asthma. Rather get to the doc.

I would rather take her to the Dr, especially because she is wheezing.

If you have a nebuliser at home, I would suggest you start nebulising her with Saline solution 3 - 4 times a day, till you get her to the Dr. He will probably prescribe Combivent and Pulmicort to nebulise her.

In the mean time, get some ACC200 Tablets. Give her half of 1 tablet (dissolved in water) in the mornings and the other half of the table (dissolved in water) in the evenings. This should help loosen the phlem.

Good luck
