In brief: Hard to say

Any med strong enough to do good is likely strong enough to do harm.When used properly this is a wonderful med that is widely used in treatment of kids at all ages.
It is a prescription med and should only be used under the guidance of someone experienced in its use.

In brief: Good and bad

Depends on your baby's clinical condition.
Always consult with your doctor before initiating any medications in an infant.

In brief: Is it prescribed?

If your baby was prescribed albuterol it it because he needs it to help him open up his airways and breathe better. Albuterol is a medication that is a bronchodilator.
Your doc will monitor you closely while your baby is on it. As with all medications it has side effects, make sure you read the pharmacy information sheet. If your child was not prescribed the med do not use it.
