Benadryl
DONT try any medication before trying it at home and seeing how it affects your child.

A Gogobabyz is a lifesaver.
Tablet with songs, apps, kids headphones is great.
Etch a sketch, safety markers, etc.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
