In brief: Recurrent cough

Infants typically develop bronchiolitis which can be associated with asthma later in childhood.
Recurrent cough or wheeze can be signs of asthma, especially with a family history or exposure to common triggers such as cold, tobacco, smoke, animal dander and other allergens. With infants some of the first signs involve feeding difficulties due to inability to coordinate breathing with sucking.

It is uncommon for parents to hear wheezing in infants but can be heard by physician.
Other signs of persistent asthma include prolonged cough- typically dry. Symptoms of an acute asthma attack could be fast breathing, appearance of being short of breath, pulling of the respiratory muscles where you see indentation in the neck and chest wall with breathing and if present seek medical attention.
