Just went to the bathroom and came back and X has taken his band off the side table and tried to put it on himself. ❤️❤️ This feels like a total win as this time last week he wouldn’t let me put it any where near him without a monumental meltdown 🙌🏻 #proudmama #allergyfriendly #nutsaboutallergies #allergytoddler #allergymama #allermates
Day 19- what’s for breakfast @the_freefrom_mummies ... well on a Friday we have an early quick and easy breakfast before we head off to our @turtletotsswim lesson! So he’s got some whole wheat parcel things (fairly allergy friendly, scroll through the pics for a look), a banana & a cup of whole milk. My husband picked these up at @waitroseandpartners last night and he said it was one of the only cereals he could find without a load of sugar & that didn’t say ‘may contain traces of nuts!’ 🤦‍♀️ Because he’s a strong & independent 19 month old I can’t possibly peel or chop a banana for him anymore- he will only have it whole and peel it himself- which can be a bit hit and miss and include some accidental skin ingestion, but he’s happy so 🤷🏻‍♀️ We are trying to transition him off Sippy cups but first thing in the morning and last thing at night they still come out- so we can leave the house without a monumental mess to clean up! We LOVE swimming with turtle tots & they are super allergy friendly & regularly send reminders to not have snacks in changing room 🙌🏻 X has been swimming with them since about 4 months old and is so confident in the water. #breakfast #swimming #turtletots #foodallergies #allergymama #allergyfriendly #ffmoctoberchallenge #freefrom #nutfree #peanutfree #nutsaboutallergies

A Big Low FODMAP Salad for dinner is #yummilicousness 🔹 A bed of romaine topped with Ahi Tuna sautéed with Spinach & a little pineapple, Carrot Ribbons, Alfalfa Sprouts, Green Olives, Arugula & a touch of avocado. 🔹 I find that the best salads, whether green, potato, rice, etc., is a variety of flavora & textures tossed together to make flavor bursts in every bite.

My youngest has needed some extra respiratory support these past few days so all the diffusers around the house are getting some combination of these oils! We did an Epsom salt bath with our immune & respiratory support oils before bed last night, a steam shower with a few drops of eucalyptus on a cotton round this morning, are re-applying all our immune & respiratory support rollers, and upping our vitamin C + vitamin D intake. • • • #thewellnessoption #knowyouroptions #oilsandlittles

Outdoor play 🌿 Any other allergy mamas only feel relaxed when their little ones are playing outside? For me it means no crumb covered carpets, no scheduled snack times that she can't participate in and the freedom to be as far away from another child's lunch as possible. We don't attend any playgroups because quite frankly down here they're not great and there is just no control over who brings in what food to a group but it does worry me that she's getting very little interaction with other children. So we've just signed up for a local Forest School and I can not wait to get Rio playing outside with other children in a safe environment! I know that she is just going to love it! 🌲🌸🍃
@bbcnews @justeatuk Not only is this absolutely disgusting- it really brings all the fear as an #allergymama . I’m lucky my little one is too young for takeaway but given the recent news about #foodallergies it really is about time all food establishments upped their game and produced food in a safe & sanitary environment- or gave us honest information when this wasn’t the case without a massive hunt for it. The whole point of take out and convenience foods is to save us time!! These basic requirements really should be a prerequisite of providing food. How many more lives need to be put at risk. #justeat #takeout #foodhygenie #allergylife
Allergy-friendly business spotlight! Guess who's turning 5 next week... @blondebaking ! ❤ And to celebrate, they're hosting a Willy Wonka-themed birthday party on Saturday, October 27th. 🎂 I'm not sure which I love more: allergy-friendly eating spots or theme parties, LOL! 😅 And get this: 3 cupcakes purchased between 11am and 3pm that day will have a "golden ticket" on the bottom of the cupcake liner. 💳 If you're lucky enough to find one, be sure to treat it like gold... because it gets you a $100 gift card towards the bakery. 🔊 Did you hear that, Ottawa?! Please go to this amazing birthday party so I can live vicariously through you. 🎉💃 For those NOT in the know about this lovely spot, Strawberry Blonde is free of top allergens and has an amazing selection of sweet and savoury treats. If you're not from the Ottawa area, I recommend checking this spot out the next time you head to @justinpjtrudeau -ville. ;) . P.S. From now until the end of 2018, AllergyBites discount cardholders get 10% off all in-store purchases. (More info here 👉 bit.ly/browse-and-buy) And while you DO need to be in Ottawa to take advantage of this discount, you can get your hands on their treats at @officialfarmboy locations across Ontario.

“Can I cuddle with you?” When he asks me that question, the answer is always “of course!” This right here is everything. My to do list can wait.

Did you know you can order more roller tops from YL like the one that comes in your starter kit? (Simply search for ‘AromaGlide Roller Fitments’ in Products after logging into your account.) They fit on both the 5 or 15 ml size bottles & are perfect for reusing your empties + making your own roller blends. One of my favorite ways to reduce, reuse, recycle ♻️ P.S. Anyone else now have that Jack Johnson song stuck in their head from the ‘Curious George’ movie soundtrack? Just me?? 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 Happy Monday, friends! • • • #thewellnessoptionbasics
This lesson has been very personal and hard to swallow. When a dermatologist and allergist can’t tell you what’s in over the counter products and warns you to never use anything with fragrance for your 5 year old, you start to ask questions. If you have questions about the beauty and skincare industry and their lack of transparency - message me.
@the_freefrom_mummies can you believe we are halfway through October already?!? Which means we are mid way through the #ffmoctoberchallenge ! So here is my mid month selfie. Not the most flattering angle for a pic but #mumlife . It was a long night, we’ve got the obligatory autumn germs now- X is nursing a nasty cough but seems fine in himself- maybe with slightly less of an appetite which is understandable. Catching up with friends later at a soft play! Hoping the ball play this morning will get the chewing out of X’s system, soft play ball pits give me serious anxiety! #foodallergies #allergymama #nutsaboutallergies

I've always LOVED Halloween. 🎃Jack-o-lantern carving. 👻 Streets lined with spooky decorations. 🌇 Haunted houses in the 'hood. And all the imagination and creativity that goes into COSTUMES!! 😎😈👮👹😺👸 This is why I am so PUMPED that my little guy now has a safe Halloween event to attend. Starting this year, @top10challenge & CAAIF are holding a food-free Trunk or Treat for kids with food allergies & their friends. 😊👍When my son was first diagnosed with multiple food allergies, one of the things that broke my heart 💔 was the thought of him missing out on all that fun I had at Halloween (...and Easter... and birthdays...) when I was a kid. Now he can enjoy Halloween like everyone else. I am beyond ecstatic. 😍 . If you are in the Toronto area and want to join the food-free fun at the @stockyardsvillage on Oct 28, you can register here 👉 bit.ly/trunk-or-treat-register (It's free to join but you must register to attend as space is limited.) . . . #halloween2018 #halloweenevent #torontoevent #tealhalloween #trunkortreat #stockyardsvillage #top10challenge #caaif #kidswithfoodallergies #tealpumpkin #foodfreetreats #nonfoodtreats #excludethefoodnotthechild #allergymoms #allergymom #allergymama #allergyfamilies #foodallergies #foodallergiesbite #allergybites

Found these little gems @wholefoods yesterday. They are perfect for Little Miss 3 because she needs to take more iron and liquid iron tastes absolutely horrible. They are free from the top 8 plus corn!! Just be very careful to keep these WAY out of reach from your kids. Accidental iron overdose can be fatal and little ones will think these are just like other gummies.
I learned a long tome ago to never get your hopes up at allergy testing. I'm a fairly optimistic person, but assuming the best seems to always lead to a big let downs at these appointments. Today we went in for a check up appointment. Fletch does his breathing test, and a skin test for whatever allergens we feel like testing for. Today I brought in milk. Assuming he wouldn't pass, but..... HE PASSED. My allergist and I cheered and we both got excited. We decided that we would try an oral challenge, but first he'd have to pass 2 more skin tests. Second one was good. Third one he failed miserably. Now THAT, was a serious disappointment. How does that even happen!? His hive was bigger than 10mm and the other ones were almost non existent. It doesn't make sense to me! Oh well, either way he has to be close to be growing out of his milk allergy. Right?!?!?
Piece Love Enjoy! Is absolutely honoured to be apart of this beautiful event in support of sick kids November 3rd 11-4pm. It’s going to be such an awesome event! Please come by and check it out.

October being thr month of Halloween tends to be a candy month, right? But what if there were a #healthy #vegan #paleo #GlutenFree #CornFree #DairtyFree #NutFree treat that could substitute all those candy bars fulled with food like ingredients?

Picked up these bits from @allermates on @amazonuk and they got delivered today 🙌🏻 not going to lie X had a MONUMENTAL meltdown when I attempted to put the band on him 😩😂 It did fit fairly nicely considering he’s only tiny! And such a bright colour that you can’t really miss it! We will try little and often over the next few weeks to get him used to it. As the festive season approaches and we spend more time with family and friends socialising I do really want this visual aid for other adults to realise they need to be careful around my child. I’m hoping we can spend the next few months teaching X with the stickers to steer clear of certain foods and check with mummy or daddy if he’s allowed things. Feeling hopeful after all the support we’ve received recently that we will be able to make some progress with him ❤️ It’s been just over a week since I started my blog, Instagram and Facebook pages and already in that time I’ve been overwhelmed by support & inspired by so many fab ideas. So thank you all! #nutsaboutallergies #allermates #thankyou #hopeful #allergymama

🍁 For Thanksgiving, I tried to teach the toddler the concept of gratitude, and finally asked him what he was thankful for. "Cakes!" he exclaimed. 😌 😅 But last night, we read this old favourite before bed. ❤ I love love love both the messaging and imagery in "Love To Be Me." 📗 Each page covers a body part, how it helps us function, and what's to love about it. Each page includes examples of children living with challenges (e.g., using a wheelchair, a seeing-eye doc, a hearing aid, etc.). Reading this book results in a lot of questions from the little guy, and great teachable moments ensue. 💙 I love how inclusive it is, and how it can segue into a conversation about food allergies. 💜 I love how it encourages children to love their bodies, despite "imperfections." 💚 I also love how it continued the #gratitudeconversation from this past weekend. 💛 And finally, anything that can teach my little one to accept difference, to feel empathy, to be grateful depsite his allergies is a WIN in my books. 👍 Any favourite gratitude resources your family loves? . . . #canadianthanksgiving #givingthanks #feelinggrateful #gratefultobeme #lovetobeme #teachablemoments #allergymom #allergymama #allergyparent #lifewithfoodallergies #foodallergiesrock #foodallergiesbite #allergybites

Anyone needing a little extra help ‘owning’ this Monday?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ Between this weather + third trimester fatigue I’m pretty much only motivated to nap 😂 Buuuttt since I’ve got miles to go before I sleep—I swiped my En-R-Gee roller on the bottoms of my feet, added a drop of Peppermint Vitality to my water bottle and took Super B after lunch.

Handy little tip for all the Mamas and Papas out there! For a quick dinner I buy the pre made meatballs from the chilled aisle but they are too big for Mini H and when we are in a rush this just makes things easier.... i cut each meatball into 4 pieces and reroll into mini meatballs, he eats these so much easier than the big ones plus they cook so much quicker so perfect for a quick meal! #mummytip #pasta #italian #meatballs #comedinewithme #cdwm #miniature #quickdinner #fastfood #healthy #hiddenveg #mummytips #lifehacks #cleaningtips #CleanersSecrets #follow #followme #mealideas #dinner #lunch #kidsmeal #dairyfree #cmpa #dairyallergy #allergymama #livingwithallergies #toptips #tipsallday #tips
An extra long nap this afternoon has meant I can drink hot tea for the first time in ages & stuff all these @bambinomio cloth beauties 🙌🏻 saved me a job for tonight & now all his bits are ready for nursery tomorrow!

Today on @the_freefrom_mummies #ffmoctoberchallenge & we are sharing dinner! (Does anyone else eat crazy early to join in with their little ones on the weekend?) Dinner in our house tonight is chicken katsu curry- not the healthiest of meals but we all love it and only have it once in a blue moon (mostly because it takes forever to make and lots of washing up 😂😂) X ate all the chicken and most of the rice then licked the sauce off his plate after throwing the rice he didn’t want on the floor 😩😩! Love it when you spend ages making a meal free from your little ones allergens from scratch and some of it ends up on the floor. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ #nutsaboutallergies #allergymama #allergymom #whatsfordinner #katsucurry
Happy #CanadianThanksgiving ! This might seem like a weird "thanksgiving" photo, but as an allergy parent, one of the many things I'm grateful for today is something seemingly quite small... something I once took for granted. 😌 If you asked me 1 year ago if I'd ever have these products in my home -- let alone feed them to my son -- I would have answered with great big a HELL NO. 😱 And after our #sunflowerallergy allergy let-down (i.e., failed #oralchallenge 👉 bit.ly/food-allergies-perspective), I did NOT expect to be crossing ALL tree nuts off our list of allergies a few short months later. 😮 But life is weird. And so I'll happily accept the small wins (which, in reality, feel rather large these days). 👍 What about you? When it comes to your allergy journey, what are you most grateful for? (Doesn't matter if you aren't celebrating Thanksgiving until next month!! 😉 🇺🇸🍁 Let's share our wins! 💙) . . . #thanksgivingweekend #thanksgiving2018 #givingthanks #feelinggrateful #gratitude #smallwins #allergymama #allergyparent #allergyfamily #lifewithfoodallergies #hellotreenuts #nutella #moofree #itsallaboutperspective #foodallergiesbite #allergybites

It doesn't come as a shock - I'm sure, that we are thankful this year for food. For those of you who have followed our journey from the beginning you already know I spent 1.5 years on a TED (total elimination diet) of 10 foods or less in order to exclusively breastfeed Thomas through FPIES. By the end of our journey I was down to six foods and it was a struggle to stay standing most days. But we did it; Thomas was put on the right medications and he started food trials at 19 months old. By 21 months old we had more then tripled his safe foods and by two years old he was declared FPIES free. During this time we got no holiday meals. I can remember staring down at my lamb loaf and wishing away the holidays altogether. This is my first Thanksgiving dinner in two years. This is Thomas's first, ever. So this year we're simply thankful for food. I will never take it for granted again. #webeatfpies . . . . . . . . . . . . #fpiessucks #allergymama #ottawamama #unitedinmotherhood #dailymotherhood #motherhoodrising  #cultivatemotherhood #simplylittle #risingtidesociety #letsclicksociety #teammotherly #ohheymama #mindfulparenting #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #clickinmoms #mom_hub #motherhoodrising #theartofslowliving #instashare #count_itjoy #dailyparenting #momitforward #purejoy #sahm #wahm
So my next post is up on the blog... Teaching a toddler food can be dangerous! If you know me irl you’ll know I’m a complete control freak- and don’t do well without a plan!⠀ So we came up with a simple 5 step plan of how we are going to try to educate our little one about what’s going on with him, it’s all a work in progress but we’d love to hear your thoughts!⠀ Check it out here:⠀ https://buff.ly/2PdAshm⠀ #newpost #nutsaboutallergies #allergymama #allergyeducation #teachingtoddlers #5stepplan
Fellow allergy mama & support group founder, Allison Venditti, agreed to journal about her experience introducing commons allergens to her baby, the "Inspired Start way." 💕 This is a really great option for parents with older food-allergic kids who are fearful of introducing top allergens to their new arrival. It's also a HUGE help for parents who may not have allergies in their life, but want a super safe and organized way of doing introductions. Since @inspiredstart isn't available in Canada just yet, I'm crossing my fingers that they'll be around IF we decide to have second 👶. I said "if," okay?! 😆😉 . 👍A really great read! bit.ly/introducing-common-allergens-to-baby . . . #inspiredstart #commonallergens #introducingallergens #introducingsolids #allergymoms #allergymom #allergymama #allergyfamilies #lifewithfoodallergies #foodallergiesbite #allergiesbite #foodallergyblog #guestblogger

You know you're an allergy mom when you tell your toddler there's a pumpkin in the trunk, and he excitedly squeals: "I want to see the blue* pumpkin!!" *pretty sure he meant teal, lol. 💙 . It never occurred to me that his young mind might actually think a pumpkin is naturally "blue." 💙🎃💙 . Swipe right to see what colour our first pumpkin of the year really is. And check out the toddler's artistic additions -- cough, scribbles -- while you're at it. 😉 . . . #orangeorteal #tealpumpkin #allergymama #allergymom #allergymoms #kidswithfoodallergies #lifewithfoodallergies #halloweenprep #halloween2018 #jackolantern

So many good things today!! First, the Seahawks won 🙌🏻, second, it has really been feeling like fall outside 🍁, and last but not least, it’s my first food post in what seems like such a long time 😍😋🤓 # The fall weather has me craving everything pumpkin lately. Truth be told, I love pumpkin and use it throughout the year in many recipes. It is one of my staples in egg free baking! # Today was all about pumpkin 🎃 I made pumpkin pancakes, drank (and cooked with) @2townscider Hallow Jack’d Imperial Pumpkin Cider, and made the best Paleo Pumpkin Chili ever! # If this doesn’t scream Fall in a bowl I don’t know what does 🤓🧡🍂 I used @butcher_box ground beef, lots of veggies, pumpkin purée, diced tomatoes, imperial pumpkin cider, and all the warming, yummy fall spices. I usually do this in the slow cooker or on the stove but I decided to use my Instantpot and it came out perfect. I topped it with cilantro, green onion, and a dollop of @greenvalleycreamery Lactose Free Sour Cream. So damn good! # Also, if your interested in trying Butcherbox DM me! I have link for free bacon on your first order and 2lbs of ground beef for free in every shipment for the life of your subscription! ❤️🙌🏻💋 # # # #finallyafoodpost #happyfallyall #happybelly #allthepumpkin #youhadmeatpumpkinspice #pumpkinchili #instantpot #pumpkincider #butcherbox #paleo #dairyfree #grainfree #glutenfree #allergyfriendly #allergybaby #allergymama #cleaneating #sibo #menieresdisease #hashimotos #autoimmunewarrior #nurturebliss
