Hello my name is Denise from Iowa and my 16mo old son was diagnosed last week with PA. We are waiting on further blood test results this week. I wanted to say hi and that I love all the information I have received reading these posts.

1 question is do you know of a good website to order signs to put up on our doors to warn people no peanuts in the house?

Also does your child wear a medical alert braclet?

Hi Denise-
My 16 mo son was diagnosed with a peanut allergy last week. We had suspected it for some time, but just got the results of the blood test back.
I don't have answers to your questions, but just wanted to say welcome. I have found this site to be excellent as well.

Denise, welcome to the board. Sorry you have to be here, though!
There are definitely such signs available, although I don't have a specific url for you. Try doing using the search function in the "Products for our Community" section of the board, because I definitely remember seeing a product like that a couple of years ago.
As far as a Medicalert bracelet goes, yes, I suggest you get one. Since your son is just a toddler, he'll get used to wearing it before he gets old enough to object to it. (He won't be able to remove it himself.) My son's bracelet says something along the lines of "Allergic to peanuts, treenuts. Asthma. Use Epipen."
HTH,
Debbie

Welcome, If you go to the search part on this board and search "printable posters" you will get a link to a great website for posters. I have used many of them for years at our preschool and on our front door. You will find a lot of great info here on these boards. I think it is angelfire.com or something like that.
Best wishes!
Lori

hello, I got this website from this board, but I have not downloaded or ordered one.
This board is very useful in many ways. I think it is helping me through the emotions of this and also giving me valuable information.
I am sorry your child has peanut allergy. It seems to be a current health crisis.
