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 have made a huge step with our daughter -- we have put in a drop in daycare at a health club that we recently joined. Thankfully, they do not allow food. However they do allow sippy cups and bottles (for babies). So it's a pretty safe place for our daughter, in terms of allergies that is. I still am nervous each time we pick her up that she's going to be all rashy. But so far, it's been nothing but fun for her. She normally doesn't want to leave and has a lot of fun. It's a big step for us to have her under the care of someone else. It's a good transition for us since we are in the same building, but she is "away" from us. Goodness, I don't what I'm going to do when she starts school.
