Inhaler vapor sometimes reaches my daughter's eyes when using mask. She's an infant. Also, is the pacifier adapter good for Pulmicort nebulizer?

In brief: Check the fit

Some leaking of mist around the nebilizer mask is normal, and for the most part produces no health risk.
Most children will close their eyes as a normal response if the mist is irritating. Consider using a different sized mask to reduce leakage. The pacifier adapter is useful for those who do not tolerate a mask, but does not deliver the medication as effectively.

In brief: Nebulizer

Be sure the mask fits properly.
Some mist will escape and it will not hurt her.
