    Webmeg- What a wonderful DC that your DD goes to. I knew they are all nut free but had no idea that you could find egg free ones as well. I will definately have to have a look around my area to see if there is anything similar. If not i think once her FDC leaves i will hang off putting her back in care until i have too although i will miss my one day off. Been told by a local DC that they will "do their best" as you said in your post would not be suitable in my book.
    Hope all is well on your end.

    Hi Hoody!!
    The most amazing thing that happened recently is that we went to enrol in the preschool next to my other daughters school. I couldn't believe it but they have recently introduced a policy where EGGS AND NUTS are welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I know most places have eggs, but to openly welcome them and nuts is SHOCKING. So these kids who are coming at 4 who have never been allowed have nut products at previous daycares, are now allowed eat peanut butter and nutella. Not only is that NOT ON for allergy sufferers, but what about the kids who just learn not to eat it at day , then start again at preschool for a year and then have to stop when school starts. Stupid.
    What they said was that they think they're safer than anywhere else (?????????????) because they are so diligent at kids washing their hands. Whyat I learnt since then was that it can be airborne particles causing the problems, which they have NO control over.
    I was so shocked, so Im just going to keep her at her current one until school. So frustrated though as I wanted her to meet all the kids in the year before school....grrr
    Obviously we're in different states, but maybe you could ask around, as I am just so excited to have found this. It's all based on muscle reflex's and opening the blockages in the body and retraining it how to accept the allergens. I will let you know how we go x.xoxo

    Sorry for my huge rant! How are you going? I have ordered some tshirts from precious child!! Just waiting for their arrival!
    Also I have found a FANTASTIC DR, a keniesiologist. I thoroughly recommend looking into it, as she has 80-90% success rate of ridding allergies. They have even had success with anaphlyaxis. Im so excited that not only is Coco going to see her but I am too and so is my other DD.

    Hi Girls - we are back and had no issues at all in Thailand which is a great relief!! Genevieve ate lots of different things but we were very vigilant in making sure they had no eggs or nuts.

    Webbmeg, i would be interested in how you go with the allergy kinesio person. I was looking into something similar.

    Hoody, my DD goes to a nut free CC and they have a very strict policy around allergy children. They have their own crockery and cutlery and menus. They also have their posters up with the action plans and the medication is kept in the room at all times. I am very comfortable in how they manage the allergies there and they have kids who have more and worse allergies than Genevieve.

    Saturday morning I was having a boiled egg for breakfast and Genevieve said "I want some". So I responded "Are you sure?" knowing that given her egg allergy she would taste it and spit it out as it hurts her mouth.

    However this time she had a mouthful and when asked if she liked it she said "yes!" Then she said she wanted more. She proceeded to eat nearly my entire egg and had absolutely no reaction to it. Not even one red welt.

    The specialist said that approx 80% kids outgrow an egg allergy by the time they are 3 so it seems that she is one of the lucky 80% and has outgrown it. Of course we will still keep an eye on her for the next few times she has egg but it's looking very positive.

    However I'm not about to shove a handful of peanuts in her mouth....

    Nai thats awesome news

    I was making a cake today and my DD grabbed the egg shell after i'd cracked the egg and ended up with welts and needing some anti histamines. Not a really severe reaction but bad enough to scare me again. I havent had them in the house for a while but an old friend visited and owns a chicken farm and bought me a tray up. I'm hoping Mia will grow out of it at some stage.

    Hi Nai that's great news!!It's also lucky because most kids with allergies never like eggs after!!
    Hoody, not so good for you. We too are still egg allergic. Had more testing and nuts and eggs came up. I will be going back in a year and if no improvement Coco will go to hospital for food testing. I really need to know what she can and can't eat!! Really hoping she grows out of it all by then. Maybe a long shot but fingers crossed!! xo

    Webbmeg, are you doing anything differently this pregnancy to try and eliminate the possibility of another child with allergies? If so what are you doing? I have been thinking about this but not sure if there is anything I can do or any info out there?

    Hi Nai!
    It's a tough one isn't it! I am definitely limiting my egg intake. I know last time I really really overdosed on egg. As we don't have egg in the house, Im really only having eggy things once a week at mums cafe when DD is at kindy. I do have egg in things like biscuits, pasta etc, but last time I had curried egg EVERY DAY!!! I am also not having nuts or nut products, this is because we can't risk it with Coco, but I am being much more aware. I won't be having Thai either as I think that was a downfall (had pad thai with egg and peanut oil ALOT), I made my own pad thai last night minus the allergens!!
    I suppose moderation is what Im concentrating on. I do seem to binge on one thing (guess thats what cravings can do to you) but apart from that I do wonder what else there is I can do.
    What about you Nai? I know I've done a little research and it's sort of 50/50 about whether it's worth giving things up, but i think it's probably better to avoid the allergens. I will continue during pregnancy as well.
    I might have a little look at a website I've found and see what they say. I'll get back to you. xoxo

    Hi Nai,
    I have been visiting a website that has info about allergies. I can send it to you if you'd like. It did cost money to join, but Im not sure if you'd have to pay to just look (I don't think you do).
    Anyway the women on there are mainly american and their kids have some horrific allergies. The general response has been that there's no proof that avoiding the allergen will help. However, I have been advised to avoid what DD is allergic to (but not be ridiculous, if I eat something with egg or nut, not to worry) and was also told to avoid shellfish due to it's severity in reactions. Then one woman said to eat in moderation (seriously I do binge on things) and rotate what I eat, particularly in 3rd tri.
    I also remember at a first aid course a couple of years ago that the woman taking the class swears that allergies come from what you eat in Third tri, so I am thinking there is some truth in that (I ate so many eggs and lots of thai in 3rd tri). So during that time I will definitely be avoiding. I think also whilst bf as well.
    Hope that helps...xoxox
