1. My son who is now 4 was diag with this severe pneuat allergy’ at about 10 months old. We were at a party, he took a bite of a PB cookie, I watched knowing it was his first taste of it. Immediate reaction and, well, now we know. Love your tips, and what I’ll add is this. Educate others, but don’t expect them to remember. We have friends with whom we do lots of things with. Every time we’re together, and a meal or snack is involved, I have to ask if Mikey’s sandwich is PB&J {it usually is.} They tell me yes, apologize, ask if Mikey shouldn’t eat. No, not necessary, I’ll just make sure my Lil Kiss eats on the other end of the table. They’ve know about his allergy since it was diagnosed, he ate the cookie at their house. But it’s my responsibility to remind others and watch out for him, until he can watch out on his own.

  2. I don’t have kids of my own but I can only imagine how hard this is for you. Keep spreading the word. Since your comment last year things have improved but we have a long way to go with raising awareness. keep telling people about your son’s allergy and explaining what this means for you and for him. It’s so frightening. Sending you allergy free times.
