A Pediatric Allergist

I can not stress the importance of having an allergist to treat or advise you on the subject of allergies. The second you suspect allergies, find an allergist. Don’t wait.

People who have “been there”

It’s so important to be surrounded by a community who understands your struggle, regardless of what it is. The answers and support that we have received from other parents of children with food allergies has been invaluable. We’ve asked and answered questions, exchanged recipes and product suggestions, and received tips on everything from breastfeeding to discipline.

We following too many groups on Facebook and blogs to list here, but they are out there for you. I’d be happy to point anyone in the direction of their support any day of the week.
