I have a million questions.. My son will be 3 in May.. and is severely allergic to milk and eggs.. and every biproduct thereof.. and minorly, dogs and cats and camels (found that out randomly on a zoo trip).. which.. I got him a "hypoallergenic" dog (yorkiepoo) meaning Jake doesn't has hair not fur, doesn't shed, and produces little dander. If I bathe him at least once a week Brayden (my son) is fine. If other people's dogs get anywhere near him.. ie my friend's Lab.. especially his face, he gets beet red and breaks out in welpy hives. I have like 10 epi-pen jr's along with Benadryl bottles spread throughout everywhere he ever goes.. including 3 in different purses... his playgroup, my moms, one in each diaper bag.. You never know right??? We've had a few close calls, but always made it to the ER before I had to do it. So.. my little guy has a limited diet.. he drinks soy milk.. which gives him lots of protein, and is enriched w/ calcium.. and OJ which also has all kinds of vitamins.. and he takes supplements. Actually, it's not the vitamins I'm worried about! The kid is skin and bones. I look at other kids in his playgroup.. and other kids his age when they come into the ER (where I work) and I'm like.. daaaayum.. He is 28 lbs. He is in the like 98th percentile on height. His pedi says since he's been that way since birth and stayed consistant they aren't worried.. but I feel like I need to fatten this kid up! And I know there are soy options for cheese and everything.. but I've tried a few different cheeses and yogurts and ice creams all of which are EXUBERANTLY OVERPRICED.. and he won't eat them bc they are "yucky". And I have to throw them away.. because well.. HE'S RIGHT! And I do the.. well mommy will eat it.. it's yummy look.. *gag*cough*gag*spit in sink* So: 1) Anyone else have allergy ridden offspring? 2) Are they underweight from lack of food options/being a picky 2yo? 3) Do I have a legitimate concern here or am I suffering from mommy guilt? 4) Do you know of any "edible" healthy/fattening options? (my mom gave him McDonald's french fries and he liked them.. then proceeded to suggest that would be a good way to fatten him... REALLY?) Btw.. he won't eat peanut butter, and I really don't have a thing against McDs! 5) What happens to them when they get into real school/Kindergarten? ~I've heard mom's say there is an allergy table at their kid's school that all the allergy ridden kids have to sit at!!! 6) Did you choose to do allergy shots? ~I almost don't know what is worse.. shots or seclusion.. Okay, maybe seclusion..
