Vague question: Many of the issues triggering wheezing in a 1 yo are infectious and not true asthma. I rarely use the label at that age unless there is a strong family history of asthma and the kid has eczema or other associated problems. Control of any set of symptoms takes a good baseline history & evaluation followed by an individualized plan. This is best devised by the doc who knows the patient best.

Not sure: There is a propensity for asthma to flare at nighttime. However, without any previous history, a new nocturnal cough may more likely be related to postnasal drip or laryngeal irritation from a cold, nighttime dryness, allergic or non-allergic rhinitis causes, or acid reflux.
