Hello All,

I'm new to this site and to the world of living with allergies. We found out in the summer that our son has allergies so we are trying to learn and change our life style so to speak. I have 2 other girls so we are wanting to have a safe house but not get them mad with all the things we have to remove.

I joined a support group and have done some reading. Still feel pretty green but each meeting i go to i feel more confident and learn something new.

Kim

Welcome to the forum!

I am also a mom of a young child with the same allergies (+ wheat) as your son's. It's not easy at first, but we've known for a few months now and it does get easier, because you start to know which products are safe, which aren't, discover new tasty recipes and so on.

Reading and discussing on these forums helped me tremendously to cope with my daughter's allergies on a day to day basis, and I hope it does the same for you! There are a lot of knowledgeable and experienced people on here!!! :)

How old are your children? Are they able to understand the concept of allergies, no food sharing and such? I was able to explain to my 3 yo niece why she couldn't have some food, because it would make her cousin really sick, and that she couldn't share food for the same reason! She did amazingly well for that age, and was able to differentiate with what is acceptable for her sister (who is the same age as my girl), and what's NOT acceptable with Anne.

Good luck!
Kim

Welcome Kim,

Feel free to chime in. Any questions, ask away.

Do your girls get the seriousness of your son's allergies?
