Food allergy advice and articles
My 18 month old daughter had a reaction this week to peanut butter. We think she has a food allergy and went to the doctor. He prescribed an epi-pen for emergency and told us to restrict feeding her any nuts at all and get a blood test when she turns 3. I still want to go to an allergist and get an opinion from a specialist.
I did some research for first time parents with children with food allergies – here are some great links:
New diagnosis (great web site – Parenting a Child with a Food Allergy)
Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN)
Kids with Food Allergies
MedicAlert Food Allergy Resources
Good luck and I will post as I discover things.
