Re: Anyone have a child with food allergies?

My dd is 14 mos and is allergic to dairy and eggs. The pediatrician recommended soy, which gave her the runs, so we're on rice milk now. My only concern with that is that it has so much sugar in it...the doc wasn't concerned, so I won't be, either...

My sis is a ped. nurse practitioner and she said that for dairy allergies, the kids usually outgrow at either 2, 4, or puberty. Hang in there...I know it's hard to come up with things to eat...and if there is by chance a reaction, benadryl is always handy! (we have bottles at home and in her diaper bag...never know when you need it!)
