In brief: Nocturnal asthma?
Respiratory symptoms are more pronounced at night due to the parasympathetic nervous system being active.
Consider evaluate for nocturnal asthma and stepwise asthma treatment. Environment optimization change pillow cases 2/week, bedsheets 1/week, remove dust/rugs from bedroom, increase air circulation, fix a/c filters. Ask pediatrician to evaluate these important symptoms.
