Benadryl Before Dentist?

Ok ladies, here's the situation. My 6 year old daughter had 2 cavities filled a few weeks ago, and Saturday she has 2 more. They are the four very back teeth, top and bottom. The tough ones to reach I guess. Anyway, the last appointment was traumatizing for her and me both. She had novacaine and flipped out. She cries everyday, has anxiety and stomach aches just thinking about going back to do it again. Getting her there will be a fight in itself. The dentist recommended that I give her benedryl 2 hours before the appointment. She has never...

Children's Benadryl for Infant?

My 8 mo old has terrible allergies this week. Sneezing and a runny nose. No cough or fever is associated. The mucous is clear. Would it be ok to give him a small dosage of Children's Benadryl? I called to ask my pedi but they connected me to the nurse who has yet to return my call. Thanks!

Should I Buy a Airplane Seat for My 17 Month Old??

My husband and I will be traveling on a four hour plane ride with our 17 month old. Should we take the chance with not buying a seat, and hope there is an open seat for the little one, and have him ride on our laps otherwise? Or just bite the bullet, and buy the third seat, and install his carseat for the flight? Realistically, I really can't see him sitting still on one of our laps that whole time, it's hard enough to get him to sit still long enough to put shoes on! But if we pick either a real early flight, or one during a normal nap...

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?

Benadryl to a 1 Year Old?

My husband and I are in a battle over benadryl. Our daughter has hand foot and mouth and she cannot sleep due to the mouth sores and sore throat and overall aches and stuff that comes along with the disease. He says we should let her get a good night sleep and give her some benadryl. I SAY NO. We first of all do not even know how much to give her because kids arent supposed to have it until they are 6!! He also says when we go to Hawaii in June we should give her some to help her sleep the flight away. I totally disagree. Have any of you...

Benadryl for a Two Year Old with Allergies, Please Help!

Good Morning Everyone. I have a question. I was just reading another post from a mom asking how to know if her baby had allergies or a cold. How to tell the difference between the two. Well my two and a half year old has allergies. Or what I think its allergies. Yesterday I called her doctors office and I explained to them the symptoms and they told me that they are allergies. So they told me to give her either Benadryl, Trim mic (not sure if I am spelling either of them right) or DimeTapp. Well in that other post one of the moms...

Nervous About Giving 6 Month Old Benadryl

Hi ladies, My six month old has been up with a stuffy nose and coughing for the past two nights. The doctor says she has a viral illness (no ear infection, nothing with the lungs) and suggested we use Benadryl to relieve her symptoms. We want to keep trying what we have been doing (running the humidifier, going into a steamed bathroom, maybe try sleeping in a car seat or with her head elevated, saline drops) before trying the benadryl. Not that I am against medicines, but I am nervous about giving this to her unless she is really...

Benadryl at Night

My almost 4 year old son has been waking up at night with a stuffy/blocked nose. I have given him Benadryl 1 tsp. for the last two nights and he has slept through the night without getting up. How long can I give him Benadryl for? I have heard its pretty safe for kids. Can they take it for an extended period of time (like everyday for months)? I am already waking up at least twice in the night due to my 5 month old and could really use some sleep!
