Coping With Peanut Allergies: New Hope

There are plenty of things you don’t bargain for before you become a parent: just how little sleep you’ll actually get that first year (five years?)…just how inarticulate you’ll be the first time your kid asks you where babies come from (Um…that’s a really good question )…and – oh yeah – the fact that you’ll never go to a movie theatre again. (Hello, Netflix!)

I kind of knew all of those things were on the horizon. One thing I didn’t see coming was that my son would also arrive into this world allergic to more than 20 different foods, some of which might possibly kill him.

Today I’m over on PoliticsDaily.com talking about some new research on peanut allergies coming out of the UK and what it means for parents like me. Have a look

    Very interesting – thanks for that! Have emailed the children’s allergy doctor now asking for her thoughts and if this is something we can do.
    I hope your son is doing ok – please let me know how it goes.
    The best!

    PS. Weird comments you had on Politics Daily!?
