Infant and Benadryl

My 8 month old son weighs 16 pounds, 12 ounces and his doctor prescribed 1/2 teaspoon of Benadryl before bedtime. Everything I read says not to do it unless they are a year old. I'm afraid to give him the Benadryl. Has anyone given their child who is under a year old Benadryl?

Toddler with Seasonal Allergies

My 19 month old is suffering from seasonal allergies. The pollen has been pretty bad in Delaware lately and he is an absolute miserable mess. We tried Benadryl but he became extremely agitated - we suspect from the antihistamine. Our Doc just started him on Singular but that doesn’t seem to be working either. He’s still waking up in the middle of the night crying with a face full of snot and in the morning he has dark circles under his eyes and even more snot. Any suggestions for other things to try to help him out? I don’t...
