Allergies have never been something that concerned me. They have always been something that others suffer from… until this Spring! With the pollen index being so incredibly high this season, our pediatrician told us that even people that have NEVER been affected by allergies are feeling symptoms.

And that’s exactly what happened in our house!

But the one who has been suffering the most has been my lovely two year old Sophia. Runny nose, itchy eyes, watery eyes, sneezing, you name it! That poor little girl has had it rough the past couple of months. Her pediatrician recommended an allergy medication but there are also things you can do in your home to keep it as pollen-free as possible.

5 Tips to Keep the Pollen Out of Your Home {and Nursery}

1. Limit the number of stuffed animals. Evey kid has them. And sometimes they seem to multiple over night. But these little plush friends can collect A LOT of dust.

2. Remove carpets. Just like stuffed animals, carpets and rugs can trap allergens.

3. Keep clothing stored. Sometimes, my toddler’s room looks like a hurricane just passed by. Clothes are everywhere. But clothing can also trap allergens. Keep your kiddo’s clothing stored to minimize the allergens that can get on them. And make sure to bathe and change them after they finish playing outside.

4. Keep windows closed. And crank up the AC. AC filters can help filter the pollen trying to get into your home. Make sure to clean your filters often.

5. Encase bedding. Use allergen-proof zippered encasings for pillows, mattresses and box springs to protect your bedding from dust mites. Or opt for hypoallergenic bedding. {P.S. We love Woolly Boo!}
