My 3 year old has allergies. Do any of your kids take over the counter meds? The doctor wants to see her and I'm not sure if I should take her in.

For seasonal allergies mine have taken Claritin, Allegra or zertyk since 1 year old. We also do local honey and I just found a homeopathic one called histaminum hydrochloricum. We ritate what over the counter one per year so they don't get immune to it

Just started my 13 month old in Zyrtec and it's helped so much.

We took our kids in because those meds are costly. Our oldest has been on and off 3 types of allergy meds at once. Our youngest is one 2 and he's 4.

Stephanie B asks Is it normal for my 4 1/2 yo to tell me I want to be the prettiest girl at school today? Then she comes home saying she was the prettiest girl in her class. How are we supposed to react? I tell her everyone is pretty in their own way.

Christy H asks If you girls have not read “Girl, wash you're face” check it out. It's a book I think all of us need to read. It really got me thinking about things. I know I am always comparing myself to other moms especially and me not thinking I'm a good enough mom sometimes. It made me realize to stop it and I'm killing it as a mom.
