No Nuts from a Tree or Yolks for ME!

Today was "The Allergist Day". We all piled up into the truck and headed down to the Children's Hospital. We got there a lil late but not to bad! We registered and seen by the doctor fairly quick. He took some background information and ordered the tests, the lady came in and began to write numbers on Miles' back and then started to put little drops of liquid and then pricked his back 12 times. He still has to come back for a blood test to determine how long he'll have the allergy.

Doc says the he's allergic to Peanuts/Tree nuts and Eggs! That means that he can't have cakes and cookies that have eggs baked in.

Absolutely NO Eggs/Egg products or Peanut/tree nut products! NONE!

You can substitute eggs in cakes and cupcakes with applesauce...It's a binder.

Works great.

Nuts. Just be careful and make sure that everyone knows the deal..

He'll be able to eat more than you think right now...

All the best...I'm thinking of you.

No big surprise here!! Daddy's allegeries passed on to baby. I've got some old recipes that Miles may like. What about milk and milk-based products? What about wheat and gluten products?

welcome to the club! We are a nut free family and darn proud : ) I second what the other poster mentioned about making the allergy info CRYSTAL CLEAR to the people around you. I can't tell you how many well intentioned people have stuck no-no foods in Jackson's hands or mouth without checking with me first. Not cool!
