pHi-this is my first posting. I'm a new mom we just found out by blood test that my 6 month old Jake has peanut allergy (5 out of 0-6 on RAST) also 4 for soy 3 for egg white. I am terrified and losing my mind. This is so unreal. I ate peanut butter while breast feeding sensitized him to the protein in peanuts. I am beside myself with guilt and grief for what I have done to my son. Please help--any words of encouragent? What do I do? I feel like I should wrap him in plastic and never let him out of the house and even there I'm afraid because I don't know what's safe.br /
Any tips for a new paranoid mom who's really losing it. The baby has had eczema gastro distress but no other reaction that I know of./p
