Mothers Intuition

Have you ever had an instinct? An instinct that begins as a gnawing...Then grows into a raging burn; a burning instinct that something is wrong...

Your baby continues to get sick from the very foods he is supposed to thrive on. I did. I am a mom of a little boy just diagnosed with FPIES.

And that burning feeling now? Extinguished. My instincts? Stronger than ever. Guiding me, with my faith, as we navigate through the murky waters of our new world created by something called FPIES.

"Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out."

Allerbling- a kid-friendly allergy band.   No, it's not a full medic alert bracelet, although it does have the medic alert symbol on it.   There isn't anywhere to put any personal information.  But Little Man's allergy is not immediate anaphylaxis, and he's never far from us.  This allergy band is intended to be a starter band for him, to help others be aware of his multiple allergies (which are not all able to be on his band).  His band has room for a medic alert symbol, dairy allergy alert, soy allergy alert, wheat allergy alert and CORN allergy alert.  He loved it right away.  It was reasonably priced and something he'll wear that will attract the appropriate attention (hopefully) to his needs.  He calls it his "arm" and we don't leave home without it. 


  1. what a great idea joy, looks very swish , its great he likes it. I have a little badge for Mitchy that he wheres if we go to birthday parties or big gatherings that just says DONT FEED ME FOOD ALLERGIES. The bracelet looks much nicer :-)
    Love Suna and Mitchy XXxxx

  2. This is a great idea. I have stickers that Brady wears when we are out but I like this idea. Where do you get them from?
