Fear of having anymore children.
I have 2 children already, my oldest does not have any food allergies where my youngest son has a severe peanut allergy. I recently have been going back and forth about having another child. My body is saying yes but my head and heart and saying no. My son's anaphylactic experience was the scariest moment of my life and I never want to relive it. He was diagnosed at 11 months and is now almost 5 and we have never had another one. I've talked to my friend's and family who state that I can not let what happen to him and what he has to live with every day stop my from having another chil, but they do not have children with food allergies. My fears are that I won't be as on top of my game with his allergies if I were to have a new baby and also that a new baby might also have a food allergy and I'd have to relive that nightmare again. How many of your children have a food allergy along with their siblings? Does anyone know how common it is for siblings to have food allergies?
