Im hoping to find someone who has these same allergies in their house. My 13 month old son is allergic to milk, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, peas, beef and most likely all legumes (slowly testing every 3 months)So far he's been good with- broccoli, carrots , chicken, squash, rice, hemp milk (allergist put him on) veriety of allergy free baby snacks, oatmeal and things like this.

I'm slowly and carefully adding to his diet. (Most of his allergies came from my breast milk only. Only thing he had outside of my diet was Dairy and it caused his tongue to swell, vomitting,hives ect.) So im terrified to see him in that state again and since his diet hasn't expanded to much I feel there will be more allergies to come since I find out more with each visit.

If anyone could give me to some good recipes, shopping lists (If you have these allergies I would love to copy a whole grocery list and check out each product and ingridient lists), brands of foods, ideas on what to make him I would greatly appreciate it. At this point im even nervous to put any seasoning into his food.. so basically my baby has a very bland diet. I would love to figure this out better so I can cook things for my whole family to make for an allergy free home.

I need help :( Please help me to help my baby. Thank you in advance for help!

I am sorry to hear of this for your and your baby. I recently found out that my 21 month son is allergic to peanuts/nut etc and eggs. This is tough enough and is hardly comparable to your situation!!!!!
One thing I have started to use is the grocery store website. I prefer Hy-Vee which is a grocery store located in the Midwest. However, I bet that a popular store next to you will have something similar on their website.
The website offered many recipes for allergies sufferers. Also, see if your local grocery store has a nutrionist. I meet with one and they gave me lots of useful tips on where hidden ingredients are in foods.
I hope this helps, I wish I could offer you more help, I am new at this too and it is very hard.
Best of luck to you!! I hope someone out there is able to help you and give you great advice!!
