MattsMom --
I had to grin when I found your posts -- is it something about being mom to a Matt that leads to insomnia? Actually, I am sleepy enough to call it a night, but thought I'd check to see if anyone else had posted.
Along with the Saf-T-Pops, I'm hoping to find out if a brand called Tropical Source (from Cloud Nine Candy) is safe enough to add to our list. They use natural colors (ie beets) in the lollipops, and I'd like to give them a try. I noticed that our Matt became incredibly, well, *animated* following his first dose of Children's Tylenol the other night, and I'm trying to figure out if it was the red coloring. The dosage of the Children's product is about six times that of the Infant drops (not six times as strong, just six times the fluid!). He never had a problem with the latter (we used it when he was teething) -- but I was really startled to see his reaction to the new stuff. It was as if someone had flipped a hidden "on" switch -- he was wide awake and talkative three and a half hours past his normal bedtime.
Sorry to go off topic so quickly!
Back to our regularly scheduled Smarties programming...
Thanks, Cindy -- it's fun to talk about something our kids *can* have rather than all the "can'ts"! I really appreciate your initiative.

M'sMom, my son had a similar reaction when he was about 2 to Tylenol Cold (which, since he was diagnosed with asthma he can no longer take anyway). I've always tried to avoid things with red dye in them, everyone thought I was a meanie because I wouldn't let my kids have ketchup, now I've just given in. They're active no matter what, although you do see a distinct sugar rush if they have a chocolate donut or something. They're bouncing off the walls! At any rate, I still have to find a Canadian to pair with you. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Great idea, Cindy. I'll offer to send smarties too. Btw, we also have Kit kats, Aero bars, coffee crisp. Don't know which are available at Costco right now but I'll check.

M's Mom and Sandie you are "officially" paired. However, neither one of you have e-mail addresses posted (neither do I, it's not a commentary on that), so I can't contact you off-the-board to let you know that you have been officially paired. I hope one or both of you is checking this thread. Oh, Sandie, please don't get them started on the other Nestle stuff that is "safe" 'cus I know that I've read here that KitKat isn't "safe" in America! LOL! Best wishes!

I'm hoping one or both of you checks in and can somehow connect with the other person. Sandie, please don't get "them" started on other great Nestle products, I know that I've read American KitKat's aren't safe, or if you do, you look after that thread! LOL! Thanks so much and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

M's Mom-- Yes, I think it definently has something to do with being a mom to a Matt. LOL At least in my case, for sure! I slept fine when my daughter was very young. No problems at all. But Matt has been another story entirely. From day one there has been one thing or another worrying me about him, or he's been sick, or just something! So there have been many, many, many nights where I have stayed up QUITE late (sometimes skipping sleep at all) because he's either needed tending to, or I'm researching different things in regards to him. I knew from the first time I laid eyes on him, that he was going to be my "high-needs" child. Don't know why, but I did. I just knew there was always going to be something not quite right medically, if that makes any sense.

Coach, thank-you, I actually have a Canadian "ready and waiting" before any American posts they want Smarties. I think that's great, thank-you very much. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
