Peas
Anyone's LO sensitive or allergic to green peas? Isobel has some mucous in her stool and the only thing different in the last few weeks has been peas the last few days. I can't believe peas would be a trigger.

My oldest son was allergic to green beans, grapes, malt, oat, yeast, tomatoes, dairy, eggs. I thought it was weird to be allergic to green beans myself but he was. We later had this confirmed through blood and skin prick allergy testing. So I would say yes it is possible to be allergic/intolerant to peas. Good luck trying to figure it out. I am extremeley suspicious that my 4 month old has some food allergies as well. I guess we'll find out more when he starts solids. It can be very hard to figure things out sometimes when there are multiple allergens and sometimes the thing that you think would be the least likely culprit can be causing a lot of problems. My two year old however has never shown any signs of allergies. I go next week to have my 5 year old retested for allergies as he broke out Sunday in a bad rash on his face and eyes got puffy. We ate at a buffet style resteraunt so he must have gotten something. Good luck!

Ok, this isn't letting me post this morning...

Just wanted to say that we also had problems with peas being hard to digest and I didn't give them to the girls again until they were older. We still can't do corn because the "hhull" is also very hard to digest. HTH.

peas are a member of the soy family i think there is a good chance if she can't tolerate soy peas may be the same way.

Thanks for the responses ladies. It's just a weird thing to be sensitive to, but it's all I can figure. Isobel's first allergy sign is mucousy poo (which my GI dismisses). I'm like the Poo Detective - I feel like I should have a secret decoder ring or maybe a cape or something, like a poo superhero. My DH said to me the other day, "You're not still digging in her poo, are you??" I responded, "Yes,yes, I am. How else will we know, dear?"

Never in a million would I have imagined all this pre-child. I guess we'll move on to squash next.

Check with your
doctor first!
