In brief: See your MD
If you have persistent symptoms despite using your rescue inhaler, you probably need to be on a controller medication or have your controller medication dose increased.
Your doctor can help make that decision. If your asthma is well controlled, you should not need your rescue inhaler more than 2 times per week.

In brief: Is nose congested?
You might want to start with post nasal drip care: nondrowsy antihistamine and decongestants or corticosteroid nasal sprays (ex.
Nasonex/flonase). If you wish to be more natural-saline spray and steamy showers and lots of warm beverages. Cold and allergy medication is not an absolute contraindication to breastfeeding. Check with you doctor if wheezing worsens (using inhaler more than 4 times/day.
