Madison has had a very yucky runny nose and raspy cough for the last week. I thought it was just a cold, but it just kept getting worse (more and more green stuff). So, I decided to take her to the doctor's to see if she had an infection (I'm not one of those people who likes going to the doctors). Dr. Sherman says she has really bad allergies! Poor girl. He wants me to start giving her 1/8 teaspoon of liquid Claritin in her bottle two times a day. She is usually such a good sleeper, but because her breathing has been so challenged and her nose so stuffy, she can only fall asleep in her car seat! I feel so bad- she just can't breathe lying down. 
Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas? Any mom's out there had to deal with baby allergies before? Thanks!

Hi De,

Drew had allergies that left him with a chronic runny nose. I was able to get a doctor's note stating this was allergies which allowed him in the church nursery.

Claritin works well without side effects. Drew still suffers from time to time with his allergies and Claritin always does the trick for him.

Hope to see you soon and get a Maddie fix. :-)
