I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful, adorable spunky little ones. Our life is not terribly exciting to the outside observer but my hope is that if I can help one other family out there with this blog then I am happy I shared our story. Our son Colin was diagnosed with Food Protein Induced Enteropathy at three months old and we believe he also has Food Protein Induced Entercolitis (FPIES). It has been challenging and a huge learning experience so far and we are just getting started.
While I was breastfeeding I had to eat as though I was the one with the food allergies. I had to completely rethink everything that I cooked and how I shopped at the grocery store. This blog, in addition to sharing our experience, is designed to share recipes, products and other helpful information with other people who may be struggling with food allergies or protein issues, like MSPI. However, I am no expert, just a mom learning all of this as I go. As for food items, always always check anything you buy to make sure it is safe for you. Never take my word or anyone else’s word that it may be safe. Recipes for products can change at anytime without warning.
