I decided to start this blog after my son was diagnosed with food allergies. For the first seven months of his life he suffered with terrible eczema and after a trip to the ER we found out he is allergic to milk, soy, eggs, sesame and peanuts. As a parent of a child with food allergies it is a constant emotional rollercoaster. I have cried at grocery stores, at birthday parties and at night. He has had the Epi injection twice and spent too much time in the ER.

Current allergies: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree nuts
Outgrew: Sesame, Soy

Before and After

This is what Aiden looked like at 3 months old. I avoided taking photos of him when his face was inflamed so this photo is actually not during his worst inflammation.

This is what milk and eggs can do to a baby! It's very upsetting to know that he suffered like this for 7 long months. I wish we figured this out sooner but I'm so happy to look at his skin now.
