The entire idea behind Basic Allergy Mom came from my experience with giving advice to many friends whose children were diagnosed with life threatening food allergies after mine were. I realized resources and just someone to talk to who understand were so pivotal in those first few months. This was something I didn't have when my oldest was diagnosed, the loneliness was real!
My oldest, Ansleigh, was diagnosed with life threatening food allergies to dairy, peanut, tree nut and egg by the age of 1. This began our journey of rediscovering food all the while trying to tame the fear and anxiety. Over 5 years later, we now navigate how to keep her and her sister Josie (PN) safe, while still giving their non-allergic brother Fritz their allergens in hopes of preventing the development of allergies.

Ansleigh (5) Allergic to Dairy, Peanut, Tree Nuts (Pecan/Walnut) and Recently Outgrown Egg!!
Josie (3) Allergic to Peanut, developed the allergy later in life after minimal exposure in efforts to keep Ans safe.
Fritz (1) Allergic to nothing, pickiest eater of the bunch.
