Continuous nebulisation will not be needed unless wheeze is severe with difficulty in breathing.

You may give her nebulisation every 4 or 6 hours.
Check if technique is correct and you see the white vapors coming off.

All cough need not be wheeze. Post viral coughs may last for 3 to 8 weeks. And all noisy breathing need not be wheeze. It my just be a nose block. So please check with your doctor if its a wheeze.

If wheeze is not responding to duolin, your doctor may add a short course of steroids.

And if wheeze is recurrent- your doctor may prescribe medications like Monteleukast/ Low dose steroid inhalers with a spacer. But these are not prescribed in the 1st episode.

Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your baby good health.
