1. Clean everything out. Dirt and dander make allergies worse, so make sure to vacuum rugs frequently, laundering them where possible. Use fragrance free, hypo-allergenic products where possible to limit exposure to new things. It is especially important to prevent mold from forming in your bathroom.
2. Control the humidity. If you live in a really humid climate consider getting a dehumidifier to limit the growth of mold and other indoor problems. If you live in a really dry climate consider a humidifier, as humid air (less than about 40% humidity) is easier to breath.
3. Try nasal irrigation with saline. This can really help out with sinus pressure.

5. Avoid allergy triggers. Try to keep your little one away from the plants or pollen that irritates them the most. This isn't always possible, but do your best to know your child's triggers. If you are concerned about what specific things you child is allergic to, you can have them tested.
6. Don't let pets sleep where you child does. Even if your child doesn't seem bothered by your animals, lots of exposure to dander can cause a reaction even if it isn't usually a problem.
7. Keep your house shoe free. Taking your shoes off at the door can prevent tracking outside allergens all over your house.
