we had a to make a trip to the hospital last night. My 16 year old daughter took her brother to get a milkshake, he brought it home and put peanuts in it, we didn't know, my daughter drank it. It was about 15 mins later she came out of her room having trouble breathing and swollen. We had to give her epi pen this was the first time she had to use it. thank god my husband was home he drove us to the hospital. I almost broke down in tears because of this. We don't have any other kids that have sever reactions to food like this. I am not sure if I can handle another reaction like this.

Why in the world would he put peanuts in a milkshake? And why do you have peanuts in your house if your daughter is allergic?

he got them from a friend and she knows not to touch them. and i am not sure why he did. look i am not going to tell my other kids not to eat something that they like and you cant keep peanuts or any other nuts away from a kid that cant have them all their lives you have to teach them not to eat them. ty for making me feel worse than i did, i really appreciate it and that kids will do things that you have know idea why they do it.

I'm sorry -- I wasn't trying to make you feel any worse. I was truly curious (how would you even drink a milkshake with peanuts in it lol).
To your other point, yes, you can ban peanuts from your house. My 6 year old son knows that peanuts are not allowed in our house and is very respectful of that (due to our PA 3-year-old) even though I'm sure he would love some of the peanut-containing products. That's always the first thing he asks in the store, "Does this have peanuts?" before asking if we can buy something.

my two other kids are very careful about the food they bring in, but my son is autistic so he doesn't understand completely. This is all new to us so trying to get the kids to read the label is different for them.
On the one thing how do you eat peanuts in a milkshake I don't know but he figured it out.
I guess I am a little touchy about this right now sorry if I sounded a little snippy. I hope you have a great day.

Oh, both of those things make a big difference ... the brother being autistic and also having this be new to your family. I was thinking you'd been dealing with it for years. I agree, that must be a huge adjustment to the siblings then if they've been eating peanuts their whole lives (my son doesn't remember any differently).
I'm so glad you were able to get the situation under control and save your daughter ... pat yourself on the back for being prepared! I'm sure it was a scary situation!

i am really not trying to make anyone feel bad but you have a child with a life threatening allergy to peanuts and you still allow them in your home as you dont want to tell your other kids they cant have it?? your son knowingly put peanuts in her drink?? In a family when someone has a condition ppl make sacrifices for one another,and saying the child who has the allergy just has to stay away from it? peanuts and pb is so easily spread and is hard to avoid even in the most careful of homes.I also have to wonder what is going on in a siblings head that would do something like that. the one place in life a child should feel safe is at home. with your attitude over all this be prepared for more reactions, its just a matter of time
