Culinary Star-Crossed Lovers

Apparently a mother with allergies + a father with allergies often = baby with allergies.

Poor Sam. Two months ago we made a layman's attempt to diagnose him with a dairy allergy. Multiple doctor's visits later we've gotten positive results on dairy, egg, peanut, and possibly soy.

Since I'm nursing (or at least, trying to), that means I'm off of these products. I figure I had it coming--I had a dairy allergy as a baby and my mother had to do the same. Believe it or not, the dairy/egg/peanut is's the soy that's the killer. It's in everything. So I'm pretty much eating jello and celery.

Maybe I'll go on strike.
