Do Your Kids Know How To Fight Allergies?

Hey Cuties,

We are in the last week of these April showers that are making way for May flowers. While I’m thrilled about the consistently warm temperatures the children and I are knee deep in allergy suffrage.  Myself and the man-child are allergic to trees, weeds, and grass. I don’t know what LittleCuteLips allergy triggers are but I know they are seasonal.  This means we need to be earth friendly while fighting nature, sounds crazy, right?

This post is sponsored by Caboo Paper Products.

Two years ago, I took LittleCuteLips to the allergist because she was having severe nose bleeds. Since then things have improved until recently. When she sneezed, it was mixed with blood, I was worried, but not panicked. She and I were managing it, I had plenty of tissue and wipes for the both of us and I padded her purse with some as well.

On spring break her right eye swole up while playing in Central Park.  She was unbothered but we were concerned. Some allergy meds and a few hours later she was looking more like her old self. Last week things got bad when LittleCuteLips sneezed out a large blood clot, I was freaked. I didn’t panic but I did call in an emergency allergy appointment for her. I won’t dare share the picture with you but there was so much blood it looked as if she had been hit in her face. Clean up on aisle one, please.

While at the doctors LittleCuteLips had an allergy test done, results pending… Of the three of us, my allergies are the most severe with LittleCuteLips coming in second and the man-child in third. Babe is allergy free and is forced to deal with a life of tissues all over our home. Our bad!

allergy tips for kids

The allergist gave us five tips to kick her allergies in the butt.

TIP #1: Spray her nose 3x a day. (saline spray, no medication)

TIP #2: Keep her nose moisturized at least 2x a day.

TIP #3: Take allergy medicine daily

TIP #4: Don’t blow your nose, dab and wipe as necessary.

TIP #5: When you sneeze pinch your nose and open your mouth.

 I've adjusted my "allergy kit" to reflect that information.

I’ve adjusted my “allergy kit” to reflect the tips we were given.

1. Nasal spray, this contains no medicine so you can use it several times a day. 2. Qtips, those are to moisturize her nose. 3. Vaseline is the moisturizer for her nose. (I rub the Q-tips in Vaseline and then around the inside of her nose. 4. Caboo tissue for dabbing since we aren’t blowing right now. 5. Caboo wipes to clean up the situation and our hands afterward. 6. Sunnies to protect her eyes. 7. Allergy medicine. (not pictured)

The family and I have been trying out Caboo products. We, the kids and I used the facial tissue up the absolute most. Achoo! All their paper products are soft yet sturdy, trust me, the boys have put them to the test. The wipes have a natural aloe scent and it smells amazing. LittleCuteLips and I gush over the scent every time we use them. No worries though, they are hypoallergenic and biodegradable.

Caboo products are made of bamboo and sugarcane, they are fast-growing grasses, not trees. They are environmentally friendly and you can help save rain forests, water, and wildlife.  Bamboo doesn’t require fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides.  Sugarcane is much like bamboo, with an added environmental bonus. Caboo’s sugarcane and bamboo paper is 100% BPA free; 100% biodegradable, and Chlorine bleach free.

I’ve officially reduced our carbon footprint and it feels good.

LittleCuteLips is doing much better now but I’m still following doctor’s orders. We will need to restock our Caboo products very soon.

  17. ricci

    I don’t have kids but fighting allergies has always been a big deal in my family. I feel like someone is always taking allergy meds!! LOL!!

  18. Karlyn Cruz

    Kids often inherit allergies from Mom or Dad. The catch: They aren’t always allergic to the same things. You inherit the ability to become allergic, not the specific allergen sensitivity.

  19. Amanda

    This is such a great idea. My husband suffers HORRIBLY from seasonal allergies so I’m sure he would love a allergy season kit like this.

  20. Carol Bryant

    I don’t have human kids but I have furkids with allergies. It is so important to keep atop allergy issues so things don’t get worse.

    Kids born to parents with allergies are more likely to develop allergies than children whose parents do not have them.

    But in order to develop allergies, there must be an environmental trigger.

      I did not now that Victoria, that explains so much. I’m told a lot of people in the DC area develop allergies. I didn’t get them until I was in my 20’s.

  23. OurFamilyWorld

    I love using sustainable products. Cabo sounds like a great brand. I should try this.

  24. Kathy

    This time of year is when the allergies start to hit. I think you have some great products here that would be helpful. I’ll have to get a few of these.

  25. Elle (CleverlyChanging)

    My daughter is having a hard time with allergies this year. It’s really tough for her because we are a family that loves hiking and being outdoors. The products you showcased look very sustainable!

    I had an allergy flare up over the weekend and hadn’t dealt with one in literally AGES! Puffy Eyes, Dull throbbing headache, girl it was NOT cute!

  30. Arnitris Strong

    I’m an adult and I still haven’t learned to navigate allergy season. Honestly, I just try to avoid be outside as much as possible, but that is next to impossible. Thank you so much for these tips. I will definitely be implementing them.

  31. Tanya Barnett

    Girl, I am on my 25th season as a mom with kids with allergies. Gabbi is 25 and Jakim is 14…I hate it so much for them even at this age.

    Mimi – Thank you for sharing your tips (and for NOT sharing that picture of the blood) LOL! (You are so funny). I suffer from tree and grass allergies and both of my girls have developed issues as well. My husband is allergic to most animals, feathers and dust. We stay having allergy meds & remedies in each car and bathroom in the house!

    I might need these for myself. Lord knows I’m struggling with my allergies this season!
