Kids with Allergies: What Parents Can Do

Affiliate links are used on this blog. Read my full disclosure here.

I am participating in an influencer program on behalf of Claritin®. This program is paid for by the makers of Claritin® and I have received compensation for my participation. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a parent who suffers from allergies, I have used Claritin® for years. I was so glad to find out that Claritin® also makes a children’s product for ages 2+. Now, my children get relief from a brand that I already know and trust!

We had a very mild winter here in Colorado, so we were prepared for our seasonal allergy season to start early this year. With Children’s Claritin® that I got at Walmart, I’m ready to relieve the runny nose, watery eyes, and itchy throat when my family starts to suffer. I love that it provides relief for 24 hours, and we can get back to our regular routine. My children love to spend time outdoors, and I don’t want allergy symptoms to hold them back. It’s comforting to know that we can still visit the park, go hiking and play in the backyard.

Online Resource for Parents

The Smart Allergy Mom Toolkit® by the makers of Children’s Claritin® is an online resource to help moms understand and manage their kids’ allergies. It will help you learn more about possible allergy triggers and allergy help available for your kids. Not sure if it is a cold or allergies? Not sure if it is indoor or seasonal allergies? Get the facts and compare the symptoms, so you can learn more about what may be going on with your little one!

How to Help with Seasonal or Indoor Allergies

Want to learn more about causes of indoor and outdoor allergies? The Smart Allergy Mom Toolkit® also offers lots of helpful tips about keeping allergies under control. Simple things like leaving your shoes at the door and avoiding outdoor play on windy days are just a few of the great tips to help control seasonal allergies! There are also tips specifically for indoor allergies. The most important ones for us seem to involve keeping dust to a minimum and making sure your humidity level stays in the correct range. When the dust builds up, I always start to hear sneezes! And, there were quite a few things I’ve never heard before. I can’t wait to try them out!

Making Doctor’s Visits More Helpful

If you’re planning to discuss your children’s allergies with your doctor, the Smart Allergy Mom Toolkit® has some great advice! It will even help you prep questions for your conversation with your child’s pediatrician. It’s a great idea to know what to ask in advance, so I suggest writing your questions down. That way you don’t miss anything, and you can really focus on what the doctor is saying. When you know what to expect and what to ask, your visit can be a lot more useful!

Allergy Forecast

If you travel in the U.S. frequently like we do, you’ll enjoy the instant allergy forecast by zip code! You can see the pollen forecast for your hometown or any location you plan to visit. I now have a bookmark for this on my phone, so I can check it before we leave home for the day!
