Hi! I am a new member, also. My almost four year old son was just recently diagnosed with the allergy. I feel the same as you--very scared. This site has been wonderful. When my son was diagnosed(about a month ago) I got in touch with a local support group. I had happened to see an news segment about it and remembered. I started slow and started calling for information on all the different foods he likes to eat. Some of it we had to ditch and others we could keep. I call new numbers each week and ask about their manufacturing processes. I work part time and my son and daughter were in daycare those days. Knowing that it could not be a peanut free place, I have taken them out. My parents watch them on those days until the end of the school year(I teach part time)
Next year I will not be returning. It's been a struggle, but we are remaining positive but proactive in making it safe for our son.
Good luck.

hope to hear from you soon.
