    • Wendi Watson says:

      Good Morning! Finally some sun after that 8 inches of madness Saturday!

    • Elicia P says:

      Oops, sorry I posting my hello on the winners post (that is what I get for doing mobile)

      Morning all. Bright sunny here in Cleveland. Currently 28 degrees but will reach 55 at some point in today. After Saturdays snow fall (4 inches) this is a blessing.

      Challenges, we do not have allergies here. We are lucky.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Top of the morning Ladies 🙂 One of the biggest challenges I have had with my oldest sons allergies is that they have ALWAYS set off his asthma. Since he has gotten older it is a lot better (he outgrew a lot of it) but even in zyrtec , singulair and advair daily until he was 10 he was hospitalized 4-10 times a year for about a week at a time- about 75% of those attacks were set off by his seasonal allergies

    • Good Morning Everyone #AMCoffee

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      Good morning! My children are still young so I’m not sure if they suffer from seasonal allergies, although, lately, I’ve noticed my youngest (23 month old) has been coughing a little with a slight runny nose. It’s very difficult, at their ages, to know what is what. As for food allergies and such, my youngest was allergic to dairy for the first 20 months of his life but seems to have outgrown that.

    • Fall allergies are the worst for my family, Sneezing and watery eyes are the worst. Both of my kids became allergic to cinnamon in there late teen years. So we have to watch everything they eat. And for some reason, my daughter and I have very sensitive skin. Things like sand, will break us out in a heart beat.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      Good morning! The stomach bug is going around at the school, now me and the kids have it… Ugh…. Good morning!!!! Hope everyone is having a blessed day!

    • Suzanne C says:

      Hello!! Thankfully we don’t have any serious allergies here, we’ve just had some sinus congestion

    • Suzanne C says:

      Good morning all, his was fun!! 🙂 hope you all have an amazing Monday! We have snow on the ground, but at least the sun is shining!

    • My children are grown, and none suffered bad from allergies #AMCoffee

    • michelle passwaters says:

      My children have a few allergies…. My son sneezes all day long not sure why the only thing I can think of is dust but sneezing is his only symptom. My daughter was born lactose intolerant but she is starting to grow out of it which I’m extremely thankful for.

      • michelle passwaters says:

        One thing I forgot to mention that moms with babies might need to be careful about… My daughter is highly allergic to fire ants!! I didn’t know there was such a thing! But she dropped her bear on the ground and picked it up and got six bites on her hand and she had to go to the emergency room she got splotchy and her throat closed up it was the scariest thing for me as a mom the doctor was stunned he never heard of people being allergic to ants… This is awful because they are everywhere and I have to watch her closely outside!

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Yes, it’s called Insect Sting Allergies.
          Awfully dangerous as you find out about it usually when it happens. So glad you got your baby in emergency on time!

          • michelle passwaters says:

            They never even told me what it was called and she was a little over a year when it happened it was scary I couldn’t be in the room with her the whole time I was a mess

    • I really wish one of my Daughter would take better care of her kids when they are sick, all she does is uses over the counter meds (if that). Sometimes I think they need to be seen by a Doctor. Everyone in the house ends up sick from them and it is dangerous for me to keep getting sick because of all my Heart conditions.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Tammy,
        Tough situation, as your daughter is a grown-up and is independent in her actions when it comes to kids.
        But when it comes to KIDS and their Well-Being, you have your right to intervene and have a good conversation with your grown-up baby!

        Like anything else, Allergies are very, very important to address on time before they end up being a huge inflammation inside the body and cause serious illnesses.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Both my boys along with myself always ended up with sinus infections and ear infections. Myself and my boys started getting allergies shots and we all stopped getting sick all the time. I had to give up my cats but kept my dogs. I have always been more a cat lover so it killed me to get rid of my cats but my oldest was allergic to them.

    • thia beniash says:

      as a kid I never had allergies. now I have them terrible. daily allergy pill keeps them at bay. my dear mother in law says take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day… seems to work. she can visit without any reaction to my cat.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      All of my children are grown with children of their own. My son had hay fever every spring and he still suffers from it. My grandchildren don’t see to be bothered by allergies thank goodness.

    • Wendi Watson says:

      its crazy but we went to the Dr. for my son and he is allergic to everything except cockroaches as far as seasonal allergies he is a mess in the spring and fall!

    • Elicia P says:

      We are lucky no allergies here with my son. I do feel for those that have children with allergies. I got allergies after having my son but really it is nothing I can not handle and to be honest it only lasts for a short time and not horrible at all. It is kind of like a spring cold (with sneezing).

    • I have Chronic Allergies.. and I have 4 kids with Asthma and Allergies especially my 2 youngest suffer a lot they are 18 mos and 6 mos tomorrow…

    • Jessica Parent says:

      My 9 year old suffers severely in the spring with congestion and red watery eyes (we have no idea “what” it is he’s allergic too …we think pollens ,but Baush and Lombs, Alaway really helps with the eyes). My oldest son-16 has been allergy tested twice due to the severity of his allergies(and them setting off severe asthma attacks throughout his childhood). He is definitely allergic to Dogs, hamsters, dust , mold (found in the air) and fresh cut grass (plus another that I cant remember).Luckily our other 3 kids and my hubby and I don’t suffer from allergies (unless you count my allergy to exercise)

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      My children are still young, ages 1 and 3, so we’re working on figuring out if they have any allergies other than my youngest having dairy allergies that he grew out of 2 months ago

    • Both kids allergic to cinnamon. They swell up and get hives.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I have had to treat my daughter Sierra for allergies daily with Claritin since she was two years old. She is 9 now but it continues to work well for her! It’s so important to keep allergies at bay because it can lead to infections if left untreated.

    • Suzanne C says:

      Yes, a little Benadryl goes a long way…if we have any kind of symptom we usually seek some medicine for relief

    • Brianna Ketchum says:

      wow that is amazingly something i didnt know

    Treating Allergies
    Thank you KidsHealth for providing us with this information!

    How Could We Reduce Allergies in our Kids or In Ourselves?

    – Keep family pets out of certain rooms, like your child’s bedroom, and bathe them if necessary.
    – Remove carpets or rugs from your child’s room (hard floor surfaces don’t collect dust as much as carpets do).
    – Don’t hang heavy drapes and get rid of other items that allow dust to accumulate.
    – Clean frequently.
    – Use special covers to seal pillows and mattresses if your child is allergic to dust mites.
    – For kids allergic to pollen, keep the windows closed when the pollen season is at its peak, change their clothing after they’ve been outdoors, and don’t let them mow the lawn.
    – Keep kids who are allergic to mold away from damp areas, such as basements, and keep bathrooms and other mold-prone areas clean and dry.

    Obviously, in severe cases of Allergies, you gotta see the Doctor Professional who could with testing determine what Allergies your child is suffering from and outline a course of action!

    amcoffee

    • michelle passwaters says:

      To reduce allergies I clean and dust pretty much everyday! Don’t forget ceiling fans and vents! We also use the reduced allergens air filters. We have carpet so vacuuming everyday is a must and we try to steam cleaning with reduced allergen products every couple months… But let’s face it fighting allergies is a constant battle to which we might never win lol we can reduce them but never get rid of them.. I also keep my kids stocked on benadryl during allergy season they take it everyday!

    • thia beniash says:

      I would so love to remove the carpets..money prohibits it. I vacuum every day to keep the allergens down to a minimum. I also dust once a week while the kids are at school.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      If you have carpeting make sure you vacuum daily and wash the bedding in your children’s room every other day at least. Also make sure you clean the carpets frequently. My son and myself are allergic to feathers and we did not know til we were tested. We both had the down pillows too. It is best to get the allergenic slip covers for the mattress and pillows. The children are worth every penny and every oz of sweat you put into making it safer for them. 🙂

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Personal care is also important to reduce allergy symptoms … especially handwashing and shampooing of hair. When outside, your hair becomes a magnet for pollen. Shampooing will remove it so you don’t continuously have exposure causing increased symptoms. The pollen laden hands, when touching the face, also cause increased symptoms. They should be washed immediately upon entering the house from the outside.

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        When I cut the grass or do work on yard I always come in and shower. If I don’t I will notice believe me. That is the one thing I forgot to mention. Ty Carol. 🙂

    • Thank You for the tips we do all of these everyday for my kids.. to help reduce their symptoms

    • Elicia P says:

      I am out on this one. I have no clue as my son does not suffer from allergies so I have never researched it. But the information you provided is nice to know in case I know someone with allergies.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      We also minimize the stuffed animals in the house (and wash the ones we do have-along with bedding often )

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I do all of the above! What are thoughts on using a humidifier? Would that be a good or bad thing for allergies?

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        That is a must but don’t let humidity get above 50% that is what my allergist says. I don’t remember what she said about getting lower % but I think it was no lower than 40%.

      • michelle passwaters says:

        We used an air purifier before and honestly we couldn’t tell the difference but we saw a difference on our electric bill lol

        • Rebecca Swenor says:

          There was something I heard on a program that the air purifiers don’t really work. It was a while ago so I don’t remember to much about it only say said it doesn’t really do anything but up electric.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      Definitely keeping down on clutter, and dust is hard sometimes but so important to do. We have really bad allergies in my family. Gotta keep the air filters and grills dusted, furniture, blinds, curtains, table tops, base boards, lamps, ceiling fans, ect. And you have to dust DAILY. But it’s keeps down allegergies during the spring and really anytime of year. It’s hard work, but you gotta do it 🙂

    • Suzanne C says:

      Yes we have allergy covers on all pillows and mattresses, I also wash their blankets and sheets weekly

    • Brianna Ketchum says:

      Wow i never knew most of this will start this now!

  9. If I do have any of these items in a room I make sure to wash them on a regular basis and steam clean the carpets monthly to remove and dust mites that may be in there. I also use a spray on the couches for the daughter who is allergic to cats. I did get some wonderful and helpful information from this AM coffee. Thank you.

  10. Janice Dean says:

    Good morning from Michigan where it’s going to be 60F today! My first time here for coffee!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Hello Janice. I am in the UP and it is 38 degrees here so don’t think it will be 60 here maybe in the high 40’s.

  11. Wendi Watson says:

    i have to make sure the dust is clear and in the summer we have to run the air windows being open are very few in between due to my son but we do watch the pollen levels if they go low enough we do open them and wash bedding once a week

  12. Jessica Parent says:

    On my oldest sons bed we also use the special covers for his mattress and pillow-makes a world of difference!

  13. I clean everything mentioned above. I do a major spring clean. but right before the the heat gets turned on for fall and winter I clean the heater ducks again.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Yep that is also very important and make sure you change the filters for the furnace. I can always tell in the winter when it is time to get new filters because my allergies get bad.

  14. Jennifer Wigal says:

    Good morning from Ohio. This is my first time for AM Coffee.

    My son is almost 10 months old and I believe he’s allergic to animals, cats especially. He developed it as soon as I brought him home from the hospital and I had to get rid of my cats. I asked his pediatrician if he would do an allergy test. I was told children don’t develop allergens (?) until after two years of age so he won’t do the testing. So far he’s not allergic to any foods…knock on wood.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      The doc wouldn’t do my severely asthmatic son (set off by allergies) until he was 4 (a biggie for him was cats) and also suggested re retest when he was 9 (due to natural immunities his body would acquire as he aged) -A few things he was allergic to at 4 (like the cats) were no longer showing up at allergies and he had 2 new allergies when retested (now dogs)

  15. Jennifer Wigal says:

    My son is almost 10 months old and I’m pretty sure he’s allergic to pets. I had to get rid of my cats is soon as I brought him home from the hospital. His doctor won’t do the allergy testing on him because he said he won’t produce the allergens (?) until he’s after two years old. I’m not sure if there’s any truth to that. Thankfully he’s not allergic to any food yet, knock on wood. Just recently the poor kiddo contracted pinkeye, but I’m not sure as to where you got it…not that that’s an allergy.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      The pink eye is from feces sorry but true. I was freaked when I found this out.

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        There is so many things are children and ourselves can contract from anywhere if you worry about them all you won’t go out of the house nor let your children out. You can also cause your children to have O.D.. My oldest has it and I blame myself because I had gone to school for lab tech.

  16. melissa augustus says:

    hey good moring

  17. Karen Hinkle says:

    I must say keeping the house clean and vacc the floor daily is a must but you all have gave me some great advice I will take them to heart but at this time no one is suffering but I do go to the chriopracter once a week that keeps me running like a well oiled machine and my grandson to

    < AM COFFEE #7

    WATER And Its Effect on Allergies…

    Is simply Amazing!

    To reduce Allergies, drink plenty of Spring Water!
    – Before you go to bed, 1.5 to 2 hours before bed
    Body is full on allergens and toxins. Allow water to flush them off and out!
    – 1st Thing when you get up in the Morning!
    During the night, the body goes through rebuilding your body and produces a lot of toxins. Help your body to eliminate them with good spring water! Drink at least 1 full glass of water when you are up and at ’em!

    Yes, Spring clean water is the best to give your body what you need and take out other toxins without adding anything body unfriendly!

    amcoffee

    • michelle passwaters says:

      Thanks for the info I didn’t know that… I usually drink a couple glasses of milk before bed guess I’ll have to change that… But I love my milk soooo much

      • Jessica Parent says:

        Lol- I’m more of a milk before bed girl too 😉

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Michelle,
        Drink milk earlier, rather than before going to bed. Milk only contributes more “food for waste” for your body. Water will allow your body to cleanse your body before BED Time! So you will be going to bed much “lighter” on allergens floating inside!

        • michelle passwaters says:

          Okie dokie will do! I think drinking milk before bed is keeping my weight on anyways lol I have been doing this for years but a cold glass of milk is so yummy and feels silky and smooth ummm I love milk 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I knew water was good for me but had No idea that it actually could flush toxins away while I slept! Makes sense since it seems to help chest congestion when Im sick 🙂 Learn something new everyday

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      That I didn’t know thanks.

    • Suzanne C says:

      Wow, this is enlightening!! I had no idea….I’m going to try this out, thank you!

  19. Karen Hinkle says:

    wow I will have to tell this to some of my family who suffers from this and let them know to try this

    AM COFFEE #8

    Aerobic Capacity And Its Effect on Allergies

    Good fresh air, when it’s not polluted, is a great way to help our bodies to get rid of toxins and allergens that are trapped inside!

    Obviously, if your child is allergic to seasonal pollen, avoid those aerobic activities outside.

    But Restrict Not Physical activity at all!

    When you increase Aerobic Capacity, bad stuff gets circulated out of your lungs and body, allowing fresh air to fill it back with clean air and lower the levels of toxins!

    Be Active with your Children!

    amcoffee

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I will admit Im bad at the whole “fresh air” play with the kids for most of the winter (although I love sledding, snowball fights and snowman ,so we get some but in the Spring,summer and fall we all play together outside (and separately nearly everyday 😀 We like to go for family walks about 5 x’s a week too.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Jessica,
        What’s needed is your involvement by taking them to the park, around the house, watching them play with Other kids!

        • Jessica Parent says:

          My oldest 2 and I exercise together every other day…..My yard is the neighborhood hangout spot with a “funhouse” (treehouse with ramps, ladders, ropes), swingset ,soccer nets and basketball hoop 🙂 I’m very actively involved with the kids inside and out (except from mid-nov until March-then its workouts in the living room and daily wrestling matches 😉 )

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Being physical is very important regardless I believe. I do know allergies can cause fatigue.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I love taking a nice stroll with my kids. Due to my illnesses I don’t get out bear as much as I should with them. But when able I enjoy walking around the block a few times with them and taking them to the park. When I was younger and living with my grandparents we would go for a walk around the block every night! That’s what I looked forward to everyday. And he made sure to buy sticks that we got to attach light refectors to, to make sure we were safe! I miss those days

    • Suzanne C says:

    I knew water was good for me but had No idea that it actually could flush toxins away while I slept! Makes sense since it seems to help chest congestion when Im sick 🙂 Learn something new everyday

    “Hiding” Allergies Do Not Manifest Themselves All At Once

    You may not notice the symptoms of Allergies in your body for a long time. But they already exist in your system, inside your body. We do not go to the doctor’s or start taking action until those Allergies start openly manifesting themselves.

    To that effect, we need to be proactive and attack Allergies from a Broad perspective.

    Wash Fresh produce, our veggies and fruit, with clean water and use specially designed cleaning agents to get rid of toxins and pathogens even from Organically grown fruit and vegetables!
    Reduce Processed Foods in our diet that has a lot of artificial coloring and preservatives
    Drink fresh Spring Water during the day and Before going to bed and After waking up
    Add Aerobic activities like power walking to your daily routine!

      Does it have to be spring water?? I know theres a lot of “crap” in tap water but will it also help?

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Jessica,
        Spring water is the cleanest of all.
        Filtered water has the 2nd option!
        But tap water could be polluted with cleansing agents that kills bacteria in it, so we could consume it.
        These chemicals accumulate with years, and need to be flushed out as well!

        You have information now. Your choice to act upon it!

        • Jessica Parent says:

          I prefer spring and filtered water but don’t always have it on hand nor the money required to get more (filters are expensive and we blow through water here). With 8 people drinking it -never seems to last long enough for our needs. Going to definitely try to keep more spring water on hand now that I know it is truly the best for us. I don’t like all the extra stuff they add to our tap water-I read the annual report they send out and half the stuff Ive never heard of but know it cant be healthy

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I heard on program you can take a teaspoon I think of pure unprocessed honey to get the antibodies or the effect of them from taking the honey daily. Bees pollinated most anything.

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I love my spring water!! <3 and I always wash my produce no matter what! Thank you or the helpful tips! I need to do more exercise for sure. It would be therapeutic! <3

    • Suzanne C says:

      These are such great tips! Thankfully, I do most of these but will need to reduce processed foods more. I only rely on that stuff for quick dinners

    • michelle passwaters says:

      We do exercise we have on demand programs and my kids enjoy doing the exercises with me
