Re: Going Back to work?

I have my daughter in daycare. Communication is the best thing you can do! I sat down with the director and cook and we went over her safe foods and explained FPIES. She has a letter that accompanies her if needed to the ER. I went food shopping with the daycare for her and we created a menu so there is no confusion. She also sits at the head of the table with a teacher by her and no kid to the other sides(she's 15 mo) so she doesn't pick at the other kids food. It's worked out pretty well...

I've never even thought of this before. My son is 2 with fpies and we've been swimming many times. And water has gotten into his mouth many times.

I definitely wouldn't feed him anything though unless the parents brought something. I think the best thing to do is contact the parent and voice your concerns.

Hi I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my 2 sons have FPIES & EEG they have had reactions on swallowing water in pools. They get pale, shakes & their blood pressure drops. I just give them lots of bottled water & that helps them n they will be out of it for a little bit. As long as you are aware of his symptoms & can react with the appropriate steps all will be good!

Swimming Lessons?

The FPIES Foundation ·
Question received to The FPIES Foundation: I am looking for input on FPIES. I teach swim lessons to infants and young children. I recently had a potential client contact me about teaching [their child] . Because I am not familiar with this syndrome, I am trying to do some research to identify potential issues that could arise from teaching swimming to this child. I have protocols in place for children that I teach who have food allergies and for those who have reflux but this seems much...

A parent asks: I am thinking about going back to work, wondering if anyone has tips on finding a child care provider, and how to not stress about trusting someone else to feed your child.
