This website is intended to possibly help others just by telling my story but does not constitute the answer of an ailment. Always seek medical advice from your primary care physician.
Kids like adults exhibit horrible allergy symptoms due to allergens to include pollen, dander, etc. And often times parents find themselves reaching for medications to help their little ones manage their symptoms but its good to know that we as parents do not have to.
A neti pot or some sort of nasal irrigation system is such a great natural treatment to have especially if your little one is an allergy sufferer and battles with constant ear infections.
A neti helps with flushing the mucus out of the sinuses that a times become stagnant which ultimately causes an infection of the ear.
How do I know? Because my little ones and myself use to suffer miserable because of our allergies. We have been ear infection for over 4 years now due to using our neti (we each have one). We also take Opc, which is natural antihistamine that has also help us stay off of meds. Learn more about Opc and how it could help you as well.
Are you lost as far as where to start in helping your little ones use their neti pots? Well, no worries.
Since I used mine on a regular basis, I already knew how to show my kiddos.

If you run into that your little ones do not like it, I've been there and done that and I still made them use it. Now, they use it with no issues and better yet...no complaining.
Even though they complained initially, as their mom I knew the importance of them getting the mucus out and knew they would not continue to suffer from ear infections if they continued to use their neti pots.
At the end of the day, I rather they complain instead of having to take them to their doctor, be prescribed antibiotics to cause imbalance with their tummies and to only go back within a month or so to do the same thing.
Because the neti pot is a natural solution, it can be used as often as needed. Our little ones normally use theirs 1-2 times a day (morning and night). I've used mine even more during the day. It really depends on your kids as well as how severe the pollen is for that day and if they are taking anything to manage their symptoms.
