There’s a universal mom-code that you discover when you join the ranks of motherhood. Being a first-time parent is pretty scary, there are all kinds of situations you have no idea you’re clueless about until you find yourself right in the middle of it. Thankfully, seasoned moms seem to have a sixth sense about newbies and ever so subtly offer the advice and support you’re needing.

Does My Child Have Allergies? What Moms Need to Know by Misty Nelson Mom Blogger @frostedmoms with Claritin

I learned one of the mom-code rules of parenting when my son started preschool classes. As soon as fall arrived and the weather started to change, the never-ending runny nose appeared. I felt like I was just a walking box of tissues for my toddler. After more than a week of it and no sign of a cold setting in I was feeling pretty frustrated. A friend called to invite us to a playdate and I explained that my toddler had a runny nose that would not clear up so we would have to decline. I whined that it looked like we may be spending the entire fall and winter trapped at home if it didn’t clear up. “What color is it?” she asked. And then she gave me a piece of advice and reassurance, a little mom-code wisdom that I never knew. It was allergies. Of course it was. Luckily there’s a lot that can be done to alleviate symptoms. Starting with ordering some new AC filters from https://filterbuy.com/ to more effectively filter allergens coming into the home – but what about outside I hear you ask?

The makers of Children’s Claritin® know how frustrating it is for moms to identify and manage kids’ allergies. That’s why they created the Smart Allergy Mom™ Toolkit, an online resource that helps parents learn more about kids’ allergies.

The Smart Allergy Mom™ Toolkit website includes various tools to help understand and manage allergies in kids, including an allergy forecaster to track the pollen count in your area. It also provides information to help you understand if your child’s symptoms may be due to allergies and talking points for asking your pediatrician’s advice.
