It is officially Spring and we couldn’t be happier! With that being said, we live in Ohio and our weather is often quite crazy! I feel like our winter was very mild and now the weather is just trying to figure out what season it really is. One day it’s snowing, the next it’s 60 degrees and the following day it’s raining and cold again! With all of the changes in the weather it’s no wonder we wind up with colds! Not to mention that Spring tends to be one of our worst times for allergies.

As a stay at home (homeschooling) mom, I can’t say that I get sick days or even vacation days, that’s why I have to make sure I keep sickness and allergies at bay—mom can NOT get sick, and if the kids are sick there’s a good chance I might catch it while taking care of them. Now that winter is over and Spring has arrived, we need to make sure we keep allergies under control.


Luckily, Children’s Dimetapp® Cold & Allergy is here to help my kiddos feel relief from even their worst allergy symptoms, and get them back outside to play. 

Tips on Keeping Allergies Under Control:

  •  Use an air purifier
  •  Keep dust and mold away by vacuuming and dusting often.
  •  Take allergy medicine before your allergies get bad.
  • Avoid being outdoors when it is dry and windy.
  • Avoid gardening and mowing lawn if your allergies act up when doing these things
  • Do not hang your laundry out to dry.
  • Keep windows closed.


A couple of our boys have allergies. While we would love to keep them indoors and away from the things that bother them, it’s just not possible. They are active and want to be out exploring and having fun. We treat their allergies before they get bad and make sure we follow some of the tips above so that their allergies do not take over and cause them to be uncomfortable.

    My parents gave me Dimetapp when I was a kid, so I definitely trust is now that I am the mom! It’s all we use.

  2. I’ve been using Dimetapp since forever. My mom gave it to me when I was a kid, and I’ve always given it to my kids, too.

    • Same! We used it as kids and now our children are using it as well. My mother in law always says that if what your doing isn’t broke then you probably shouldn’t try to fix it. This works for us. 🙂

  3. Dimetapp is great stuff. We’ve always used it with our kids when they got sick. I didn’t know they made a line for allergy relief.

    • They sure do! It’s definitely worth checking out! I’m always happy when a brand we love and trust comes out with additional products that will be helpful for our family. 🙂

  4. I love Dimetapp. My doctor recommended it to me when my kids were little, and it’s always done a great job. I’m glad they’ve got a formula for allergies, too. That’s really great!

  5. My son is 1.5 and last year come spring he was always sneezing and coughing. Im pretty sure it had to do with allergies. I’ll have to try this this year, thanks for recommending!

  6. We live in Tennessee and our allergies are kicking our butts right now! Dimetapp is one of the needs my daughter doesn’t actually mind taking! It works pretty quickly too!

  7. Deborah D says:

    Dimetapp is all I use. It is a great product.

  8. It’s definitely about that time! It’s good to be prepared for those symptoms because they are just so annoying!

  9. We’ve had terrible allergies this year! I think it has to do with this crazy weather we’ve been having!

  10. Allergies are the absolute worst, especially for kids. I do extra linen and towel washing, as well as more frequent dusting, for this exact reason!

  11. Allergies are at an all time high this time of year in Texas. Pollen everywhere

  12. Allergy season is definitely a tough time of year. It’s hard on the kids and adults! So glad there are medicines out there to make it bearable.

  13. We all have allergies in my family. We swear by Dimetapp in the spring and in the fall when pollen is bad.

  14. Allergies are so not fun! I was just looking up a few good allergy remedies. Good to know that there are things to treat the symptoms.

  15. I still remember taking Dimetapp as a child. It was also my kids’ pediatrician’s recommended relief for colds. Now that the grandchildren are here, Dimetapp is also our go-to medication for colds and allergies. Tried and tested. Doctor recommended. Mommy approved. 🙂

  16. our family world says:

    Give your child plenty of liquids to keep hydrated and help thin out mucus. Water, juice and electrolyte drinks are good choices.

  17. These are really great tips! I need to do these! Dimetapp is great for my kids allergies, and they love the taste too!

  18. It’s really important to be prepared during Spring especially when it comes to allergies. I love that there are products that we can rely on to keep our kids safe and away from the all the allergies this season.

  19. I love the campaign name Sick Just Got Real, creative! I was about to say I am suffering from more allergies than a cold but this is a combo product, I never seen that done so thats cool.

  20. Jessica W. says:

    I’m always looking for tips to keep the allergies away. Mine are really bad year round and I am just hoping my baby doesn’t grow up with same type of allergies. If she does though, I’ll be using Dimetapp to keep things in check.

  21. katrina gehman says:

    we always keep some on hand just incase. i’m glad my kids don’t mind the flavor either! it’s such a life saver some nights.

  22. The winter is the worst for my kids. I know I need to stock up on medication before they get sick so I’m ready. Dimetapp always works great for us.

  23. I haven’t used this in a while. If I’m not mistaken, this has been around a while. Good and consistent!

  24. I used this stuff when I was a kid. It works great.

  25. Dimetap was always on hand when I was a child! So glad I am still able to give it to my children!

  26. My son has horrible allergies. Dimetapp is the only thing that will knock them out.

  27. I am lucky, allergies aren’t too bad. However my daughter has sevier allergies. Have tried so many products but didn’t think of Dimetapp. I will certainly try it. Thanks.
