My daughter, who just turned 4 has to do breathing treatments twice a day. She has been on Pulmicort for about 5 months now and still fights and cries every time she has to sit and do her "breather". I usually turn on her favorite show but it still doesn't make her any more eager most days and it is hard to get her to sit for the 10-15 minutes that it takes. Any ideas on how I can make this time more pleasant for her and for me? The machine is pretty noisy, so reading to her during the treatment isn't really a good option for us.
Thanks for your help.
