So confusing…

Posted By Alison On May 1, 2007 @ In News & Research | 4 Comments

A new study says that perhaps introducing highly allergenic foods (like peanut) early in life would increase tolerance later in life. This goes against the previous belief that food allergies develop when the allergenic food is introduced too early. What’s the right answer? Unfortunately, no one knows (yet).

My Daughter #1 is allergic to eggs, cashews and avocados – things I ate a LOT of while pregnant and nursing. This example would seem to support the theory that early exposure (via breastmilk) triggers the allergies. Now I am nursing my Daughter #2 and trying not to eat a lot of the things Daughter #1 is allergic to – am I doing the right thing?? So confusing! Sigh. Stay tuned…
