peanut allergy in 11 month old.

Posted by gram-ma [784.3234] on January 13, 2007 at 20:56:35:

Basic background : 11 month old grand-daugher, 4 ear infections in 6 months...amoxicillin for 3,now she is on a stronger ABX, don't know the name... it is a creamy white liquid with "warnings" all over the label. 2 dogs, 2 cats, a 6 yr old brother with no allergies....she started to crawl one month ago,she had a flu shot 2 weeks ago...my DIL sent this e-mail yesterday : "reagan is allergic to peanuts. i gave her the crust of a p.b.j. sandwich. with very little peanut butter on it, and her face puffed out and her eyes swelled almost shut. all in about 3 minutes. so we went to the dr. and now we have to carry around an epipen"
My "baby" is 27 yrs old, and I do not remember this many ear infections and allergies back in my child rearing days. After all I have learned on this BB, I have to bite my tongue a lot, especially when I see what the baby is eating, or rather, not being fed ( like healthy food/fruits/veg )....but I really feel that some of the things that I mentioned in the first paragraph have contributed to this allergy problem.
Can a baby develop LGS from ABX ? Flu shots for babies ? Pet food has traces of nuts...and dogs love to lick babies faces)-: I feel like all these shots and vaccines that infants are being given, contribute to this widespread allergy/asthma problems in young children.
Any feedback/suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks, gram-ma

Hi, Gram.

Of course you are aware that grammas know nothing and will never be listened to by the next generation--especially when it has an "allopahtic, licensed physician" on their side.

Unfortunately it is the child that suffers. There is plenty of information out there that now contradicts that monopolistic allopathic dogma but the mother will have to do that research and is not likely to put out the effort.

Good luck!

I suspect antibiotics can contribute to allergies, but vaccines definitely can, and children today receive a great many more than were used 20-50 years ago. My kids had no vaccines and no earaches in early childhood. One kid was hospitalized fortype 1 diabetes at age 7. Contracted strep 10 days into his hospital stay and had his first course of antibiotics. After that, he developed earaches, flu, mono, and more strep. Another mom finally told me about antibiotics needing to be followed by probiotics. That helped a lot. We also discovered he had developed a gluten allergy (in response to the antibiotics? I don't know). Once he was taking probiotics and got off gluten, the acute sicknesses all went away. My other kids have only gotten earaches occasionally, and that's been as part of using the community swimming pool. They don't have allergies, and we no longer use antibiotics for earaches (many doctors don't anymore). Options for earaches include drops you can buy at the health food store- one is garlic oil, another has grapefruit extract, a third is a nasal spray called XLEAR that also works great in the ear.
For good info on vaccines, see www.909shot.com

Busy moms don't always have time for research. You might occassionally e-mail her short health articles on vaccines or earaches and give her time to digest one before mailing off another.

In addition, several studies also suggest a link between vaccines and autism. I am a new mom to a 6 month old boy and I have refused several vaccinations that I do not feel he needs, the flu shot being one of them. Our pediatrician disagrees with me, but so be it. I read something like the average 18 month old will already have had about 20 vaccinations, that seems excessive. Some are required to enter the school system, others are just recommended.

before your kid gets to school age, learn about exemptions to vaccines in every state-see www.909shot.com
