Hello all. I appreciate this site so much for gathering information, but I am wishing there was a more private forum or Yahoo group especially for moms of peanut/tree nut allergic children. I am a member of other mom groups online and it is always wonderful to have a place to chat with and get support for women in a similar situation. Does anyone know if such a group exists for peanut allergy moms? Would anyone on here be interested in starting one up with me?

Hi Lauren,
My 1 year old son was also diagnosed being allergic to peanuts, eggs, milk and dogs a few months ago.
There are 2 great places you can use for guidance: FAAN and KFA.
Here is their web site:

I have a 1 year old that was diagnosed with egg, milk, peanut, and broccoli allergies at the age of 4 months.
I agree with Leticia. Both websites are great. I like KFA because they have a great support forum for everything and the moms are very supportive of each other!
