But no matter what side of the argument you fall on, one thing is for sure–we have got to figure this one out soon because anaphylaxis is becoming more prevalent than ever before. Luckily, breastfeeding has become popular again so we are at least conferring as much protection on our babes as possible. A bit more guidance though for how moms should navigate through these murky allergic waters would be helpful. I will do my best to stay on top of research as it comes out and ask that you use this forum to do so as well.
In the meantime, though I have my own personal experience of this topic to share in a future post, I would love to get feedback on what your experience is in this area. Are you a breastfeeding mom of an anaphylactic child? If so, are you eating that allergen or avoiding it? What kind of signs and reactions are you seeing, if any?
I am also very curious to know, How are you dealing with the emotional aspect of having an anaphylactic baby in the first place? Submit your comments and I promise to get to them quickly.
Thanks for your feedback!
