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

October/November babies = Allergies

My co-worker sent me this link. It pretty much says that there is a new study that links children's allergies to when they were conceived and the first three months of the mothers pregnancy.

Babies who are born in October-November are more sensitive to allergies because their mothers were exposed to a higher concentration of birch and alder pollen in the first three months of development which is the most crucial time and can affect the development of the babies immune system.

Aiden's birthday is late October which puts him in that category. Let's just say if i ever get pregnant again i will avoid an October/November birth day with all my power.
