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:

Good luck and I will post as I discover things.
