  • there is this stuff called little noses...there is a spray to "clean out" their noses...then there is a gel that you rub on the inside of their noses and it prevents allergens (maybe germs he breathes) from affecting him...the are Both non-medicine types of things safe for babies and kids!!

  • I've tried saline solution for my daughter. We spray it in her nose and it seems to help for a few hours. Once in the morning, and the other before bedtime although you can use it all day long, I think. It's called "LIttle Noses"

  • I use little noses and a humidifier for my little one when she has a cold.

  • We just went to the allergist the other day and I was discussing the same thing with her. She said people think they get summer colds, but the viruses are dormant in the summer and it is almost always allergies of some sort. My son takes (generic) Claratin - he's 2 and gets those runny noses and such that just don't stop. He gets 3/4 tsp once daily and it really helps - but he has to be on it consistently to work. If I give it to him only once in a while it doesn't do the job as well. I hate medicating my child, but I hate more that he is miserable.

  • I had the same problem with my son. Claritin didn't help him any. So I tried Zyrtec, it worked so much better. If money is an issue, use the generic version.
