Hello! I am new, and posted a message in another forum before i realized this one was here, sorry.

I live in NC with non-food allergic hubby and 15 month old PA son Tyler. I have mild food sensitivities but nothing I would classify as an 'allergy'.

I have a couple of questions I hope you guys can help with (I did my best to ensure these weren't covered recently).

1. Are Medic Alert bracelets ok for babies? I called up medic alert but they of course were hesitant to promise that they were safe

2. Peanut oil - has anyone experienced a reaction? My son's allergist seemed very knowledgeable about PA, but I was surprised when he told me Tyler could have items cooked in peanut oil, I have been avoiding it entirely just in case but I would love to know your experiences.

So thrilled to have found this site!
