I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.
If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.
We were really hopeful with our test last week with our daughter that she might have outgrown her milk allergy. We gave her Cool Whip and she had no reaction. Yesterday, I mixed up an icing with milk in -- much more concentrated with milk than the Cool Whip. We drizzled it on graham cracker and raisins. Just as we were discussing what it would mean if she had no reaction, my husband said "look at her chin." We looked and sure enough hives. She normally reacts almost exactly five minutes after the first bite. She was right on cue again. I had a small dose of Benadryl on hand to give her and then we went on with our day. So, we stick with the milk-free diet for now.
