3 Ways To Keep Kids' Allergies At Bay + Giveaway


This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own.

Hello, Sunshine! Monday, March 20 is the first day of Spring! Sure, it’s sunny and pretty warm all year round here in Florida, but there’s something about Spring that makes me extra happy. I know that Fall is the preferred season, but I love seeing the flowers bloom, the grass turn green, and watching the baby cranes gracefully walk through our neighborhood. I love all of the new beginning and fresh starts the Springtime represents. The only downfall to Spring – allergies. JD and I sadly suffer from allergies. The kids aren’t bothered by it as much as we are, but there are times that I see their red, watery eyes and know that it’s time to take action.

3 Ways To Keep Kids’ Allergies At Bay

1. Wear Sunglasses While Outside

For some reason, allergies love to make my family’s eyes red, watery and majorly itchy. We all can be seen wearing sunglasses when we’re outside. Sunglasses not only protect our eyes from the sun, but sunglasses can also help keep pollen out of our eyes.

2. Shower at Night

I’m usually a shower in the morning kind of girl, but during peak allergy season I shower at night. Showering at night washes off all the pollen from skin and hair. Bathing at night also helps to keep allergens off of your bed sheets and pillows. Your kids will be able to rest better with the day’s allergens washed off of them.

3.  Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Allergy

When allergies become too much for my kids, I reach for Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Allergy (ages 6+). It has a great tasting grape flavor, powerful congestion-fighting power to relieve stuffy and runny noses, and much-needed relief for itchy and watery eyes. *It is important to remember to always read and keep the cartons for complete warnings and dosing information on Pfizer Pediatric products and to use as directed. 3 Ways To Keep Kids' Allergies At Bay + Giveaway
