Seasonal Allergies and meds??

I'm pretty sure my 9 1/2 month old has seasonal allergies. Hubby and I both have allergies/sinus issues. And we're noticing a pattern of when we're stuffy and yucky, he gets stuffy and yucky. I also noticed the other day, on the weather, when the weed pollen count went up, he started up with the runny/stuffy nose and puffy/watery eyes. He gets so bad sometimes that he can't breathe through his nose at all. What do you think about allergy medicine for them at this age? One doctor prescribed Claritin by day and Benedryl by night. But his new pediatrician feels he's too young for Claritin. Has anyone else had this issue? Or used any allergy medicines? TIA!!!
