“Am I allowed this Mummy?” – teaching my child about allergies

Parenting a child with FPIES can be so hard. First up there are the physical symptoms; vomiting often until unconsciousness, but then, as your child gets older, you have to start to teach them about FPIES, and allergies. I want to share with you how I am teaching my child about allergies. I’m not professing to be an expert, and this post is just written based on my own experiences, but I hope someone will find it helpful! My daughter is 3, so I have kept everything fairly simple, but I hope this post will give you a frame to base your own learning experiences on, and perhaps inspire some new ways to talk about allergies.

Daisy had an FPIES food trial for dairy!

Recently our lovely Daisy headed to the Evelina Children’s Hospital for an FPIES food trial and I thought I’d pop up a little post explaining how it worked and how she got on. We explain allergies to Daisy well, and so she was aware before we visited the hospital, of everything that would be happening.

Daisy loves hugging trees!
Daisy loves nature so much!

Attending a wedding with FPIES (or other food allergies)

We have been living with FPIES in our family for 3 years now. Parenting a 3-year-old isn’t always easy, even without food allergies. When we were invited to a family wedding while we were very excited, to see my brother-in-law finally marry his long-term partner, it also filled us with dread. Attending a wedding with FPIES was something that I had never really thought about and now the wedding has passed I want to share some tips with you in the hope of helping someone else.
