Ethan had his very first peanut butter and jelly sandwich today. I've been a little hesitant about giving him peanuts. With his asthma and eczema, and my nephew with a severe peanut allergy - I was nervous. I mentioned it to our asthma/allergy doctor last time we were in. He suggested that I come park in his parking lot one day and give him his first taste there. That way - if he has a reaction - I'm very close to help. So, that's what we did yesterday. I loaded up the dvd player and some yummy peanut butter treats and we all sat in that parking lot for 30 minutes until I was sure he was ok. He did fine so as of today he's on the PB&J train.
Call me paranoid - but in this case I'd rather be safe than sorry!
