Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I should just email you, but I am sort of lazy. My sister has a great trick she uses for her six-year-old daughter, Bryn, every Halloween. Bryn doesn't have reflux, but she has severe food allergies. My sister takes her trick or treating as usual. When they return home, Bryn empties her bag onto the carpet, and my sister separates all the "safe" and "unsafe" treats into two piles. For every piece of unsafe candy, my sister trades her a piece of safe food that she has stocked up on. For example, she'll give Bryn a mini package of Skittles in exchange for a Snickers. Bryn gets to enjoy all of the fun of trick or treating, and my sister gets to enjoy not stressing about a reaction.

Hope this helps! Sorry for my laziness!

Oh! I love that one. I am going to use that for sure. That is a really great idea. :)
Check with your
doctor first!
