Happy Valentine’s Day!

We at Modern Day Moms hope your day is full of roses, boxes of chocolate and romantic poems… but if your life is more like ours, this day isn’t so much for storybook romance as it is for adorable fluffy bears, paper cards and conversation hearts. Around here, Valentine’s Day is all about the kiddos!

According to BabyCenter, A pet allergy is an immune reaction to animal dander (skin flakes), saliva, urine, or feces. (Animal fur or hair itself isn’t much of an allergen, but it can trap pollen, dust, mold, and other allergens.) When a child with pet allergies breathes in dander or comes in contact with saliva or droppings, his immune system goes on alert and releases histamine and over 40 other chemicals to fight off the allergen.
