Welcome to the asthma community!

It's hard to say what to do, as it just may be a bad season for viruses, and your little ones may have sensitive airways. Just keep up with their treatment. However, if it continues into the summer or they keep getting repeat boughts of bronchitis then I would certainly get it further looked into. As asthma can look like acute bronchitis. There are other lung disorders to consider, particularly if one gets repeat pneumonia.

Just keep a close eye on them and see their doctor when they need treatment.
