I am participating in Influence Central’s Ambassador 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.
We all look forward to spring. It is the time of the year when everything looks alive again (even though the weather here in Chicago has been pretty bipolar with 70s one day and snow the next!). Unfortunately, for some of us, spring also means our allergies become active again. Trees, grasses, and weeds all release pollen into the air for us to react to. There is nothing worse than having a runny nose, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and itchy nose or throat. Some of the things that may be setting you (and/or your kids) off are:
- Box elder
Grasses and weeds:
- Perennial rye
- Sweet vernal
I personally have allergies. Unfortunately, I have passed these allergies along to Will (my soon to be ten year old). I can tell you, you can’t avoid all of these things. It would be impossible! However, I can tell you to check out The Smart Allergy Mom™ Toolkit from the makers of Children’s Claritin®. It is a resource to help you talk to your pediatrician, and it also provides resources and tools to help manage your kids’ allergies.
- Learn which provides information to help you understand if your child’s symptoms may be due to allergies. It lists tips and information on how to tell the difference between allergy symptoms and a cold.
- Ask provides talking points to help guide your conversation with the pediatrician around allergies for your kids. You’ll know the right questions to ask and what answers to look for.
- Manage provides tips to help manage your child’s allergies and tips to minimize both outdoor seasonal allergies and indoor year round allergies.
It’s a pretty awesome resource. It gives you a great understanding of what you are looking for, and if your child does have allergies, how to deal with it. I’m thankful for Children’s Claritin® non-drowsy relief that lasts all day, and that they want to help us moms navigate the world of spring allergies.
