Mums do taste test outside hospital in case of allergic reaction

Quote:
WORRIED parents are holding "peanut butter parties" in parks near the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide in which they give their children the spread for the first time

After witnessing what happened to my DD with eggs, I did this when my DS was young (a couple of picnics). He is now just about 6 feet tall so that was a long time ago. I didn't talk about it with anyone (except family)cause when I did mention it to our family doctor, he kind of brushed it all off as kind of silly that I would think this way. I knew no one else that was dealing with anaphylaxis(it would have been nice to have company). Things have changed...with the growing number of allergies I think this is a good idea, especially if there is a history in the family. It's not like it's those chickenpox laced lollipops.-the people that are doing that are flirtin'w disaster.(although,I do remember pox parties (pre immunization time).

Problem is, most people don't react the first time they eat an allergen. The first time sensitizes you.
