We just found out that my 18 month old son is allergic to all nuts. I was trying to hold off giving him any peanut butter until he turned 2. Well, he got a hold of a piece of candy my 4 year old brought home from school after her Easter Egg Hunt. We spent part of Good Friday at the doc's office. And you have to wait a month from the initial reaction before the test can be performed, who knew? We meet with the pediatrician on Wednesday to learn more about the test results and where we go from here. My two daughters have no allergies so we may be in for a rude awakening if we have to remove a lot of the foods they like from the house to keep their little brother safe. Several friends at my daughters' school have kids with nut allergies so I've been getting advice from them, but meeting with the doc will hopefully ease some stress. What a journey we are about to embark on and I'm glad there is a site like this to assist.
