odd and unusual reaction
I just joined the forum and I wanted to share my son's first reaction to peanut butter with everyone in case they have a child who has the same thing happen. My mom made some PB balls for him and his sister (he is 15 months old). Upon eating about half to 3/4 of the ball, he let out a long sigh, and sort of went limp in his high chair. My mom couldnt get him to wake up. It is very unusual for him to fall asleep like that, he is not a good sleeper or napper, so she completely freaked out. She gave him a small dose of Benadryl, and after about 20 seconds, he snapped out of it and woke right up. Very strange. I told the doctor about this and she didn't seem to believe me until she did the skin test and he had a reaction to the peanut one. I guess not everyone will either gasp for air or break out in hives. he just sort of drifted off....very scary....
