I love fall. It’s my favorite time of the year for so many reasons. The pumpkins, the crisp air, the changing leaves: they’re all amazing parts of the season. The one thing I don’t love is fall allergies! Both Jacob and I seem to have them even worse in the fall than in the spring, which is saying a lot because we have them pretty bad in the spring!

Ever since Jacob was diagnosed with seasonal allergies, Children’s Claritin has been our number one go-to product. For us, it just works better than anything else we’ve tried. Jacob even asks for it when he’s feeling stuffy. He typically can’t stand most medicines, but Children’s Claritin is one that I’ve never had an issue with! He likes the taste enough to actually take it without complaints!

As part of the Children’s Claritin Mom’s Crew, I receive great Children’s Claritin goodies throughout the year, including this cute Back to School kit:


I also receive loads of great tips on dealing with allergies. Check out these awesome tips. While they’re for children, if you have allergies, a lot of them can apply to you too!

Back to School Allergy Survival Tips from Children’s Claritin

  1.  Be sure to have Children’s Claritin, the #1 pediatrician-recommended non-drowsy allergy brand, on hand!
  2.  Multi-vitamins are building blocks to having a strong immune system. Make taking a multi-vitamin part of your child’s daily routine.
  3.  Let there be light! Mold doesn’t like sunlight, so try to keep your curtains open during the day. Should be easy during the summer months!
  4.  Did you know that most pillows trap allergens, dust mites, and bacteria? Monitor the cleanliness of the pillow your child with allergies sleeps on and replace if necessary.
  5.  Back to school season means lots of laundry for many moms. Be sure to remove laundry from the washing machine promptly. Allowing wet clothes to sit in the washer means mold can quickly grow there.
  6.  Monitor pollen counts and adjust outdoor before and after school activities accordingly. Dry, windy days can be particularly high in pollen.
  7.  Showering or bathing at the end of the day as opposed to the morning can be helpful in removing allergens from body surfaces and hair.
  8. Stay hydrated! Always send your child to school with a bottle of water. Drinking lots of clear fluids through the day can help get rid of toxins and flush out body.
  9. Peak pollen production typically occurs in early morning, so try to plan outside activities at other times of the day.
