It seems pretty quiet here but I thought I'd stop in and say hello regardless! I'm always looking to connect with other mom's who have children with allergies so this will hopefully be a good place to share stories and get advice!

My daughter Violet was diagnosed at 13 months old with severe anaphalactic allergies to peauts and all tree nuts. It has pretty much been a nightmare for us as we adjust and learn - we often find ourselves in situations we had never thought where contamination was possible or she will suddenly have swelling and hives out of the blue.

We currently have a completely free peanut and tree nut household and we've been educating ourselves as best as possible about these allergies!

She will be 21 months old on the 20th of this month!

Welcome, Melissa!

Sounds scary, but like you're adjusting the best you can. Did you have any suspicion she was allergic before the diagnosis?

Due to my own allergies I suspected my DD would be allergic to peanuts and always avoided them - she was in fact diagnosed potentially anaphylactic. It scary stuff.

Welcome to our group It can be a little slow around here, but we do have a really great supportive set of ladies That does sound very scary, and she is absolutely beautiful by the way!! (While I'm handing out compliments I love your siggie Jackie!)
I'm Jenna, married to Ross. We have 2 boys, Toby and Logan. Toby is my most allergic child, but they both have just eczema type reactions. We avoid soy, peanuts, eggs, dairy and dyes; for the most part with both boys. Logan gets a slightly more varied diet than Toby; but its easier for them to just have the same thing usually. I'm glad you found us and said hi!

Welcome. I am new here as well. My dd doesn't have allergies, but has celiac disease so we run into similar issues. The only difference is she doesn't have the anaphylactic problem which does make things a little easier. In some ways though it makes it harder to get people to be diligent with her care.

Hi & welcome (a little late, as we adjust to our new fall schedules with school!). I am a SAHM to little men with allergies, thanks to my husband`s genes DH is allergic to nuts, penicillian & a plethora of other things, while my boys have each had reactions to nuts, as hard as I tried to keep them away from them, & penicillian. My youngest gets hives from nuts, but my oldest is anaphylactic, therefore we are a nut free home. Hope to hear more from you soon
