My Baby's Allergic
I'm new to the forums though I've been surfing this site from time to time.
My baby boy has his first reaction to peanut butter 3 days before his first birthday, after rubbing it in his eyes.
He's now almost 20 months and hasn't had another reaction since...but we have NOTHING with even a small trace in our home, make our visitors take off their shoes and wash their hands, and make all our own food from scratch.
We are organizing a Run for Anaphylaxis Canada hoping for it to take place in May for Food Allergy Awareness Month. Our son was our inspiration for doing this. After seeing so many FAAN walks in the states I decided we need something like that in Metro-Vancouver.
Anyway, our boy is our one and only but hopefully one day he'll have a brother or sister. I am completely dreading him starting school...I quit my job after mat-leave as I just wasn't comfortable putting him in Day Care with his allergy and being so young.
How long have you all dealt with the allergy?
You're all amazing for doing what you do.
