OK mamas (and daddies), we are finding ourselves in a weird spot. We have begun trialing egg with Samaya who is 33 months old. She has passed chicken, but not any "special" kind of chicken. I always buy the same brand of Amish chicken, but it doesn't claim to be soy free or anything, just not injected. So now we are trialing plain old regular big chain store bought eggs and we are seeing problems. She isn't to vomit, but her mood was terrible and we had nasty diaps and tummy aches. It was definitely building. We pulled them 2 days ago and things have gotten dramatically better. I want to give them to her again and I am thinking I will try soy free eggs in hopes it is the soy in the feed rather than the egg itself, but that is hard to believe since the meat doesn't cause problems. So, has anyone out there passed chicken and failed chicken eggs? And do you think trying soy free eggs is worth a shot? Thanks for your thoughts!
When you can get her back to her old tricks again, I do think soy free might be worth a shot. I hope you can find some around you and I hope you will keep all of us posted! eggs would be so great!
I would definitely say it is worth a shot to try again!! Good luck!!!!! =)
I don't think we will be trying soy free eggs any time soon. She has had a horrible viral infection as a result of the toll the fail took on her immune system. It wouldn't be easy for me to access soy free eggs here and I just don't see time for getting them every couple weeks either. Not to mention, in my heart of hearts I don't think it was the soy. I think it was the egg. She patched positive to them when she was 1.5 years old. It just isn't worth it to put her through.. again. Maybe next year.
Things were looking so good for a little while- eggs are so hopeful!! They would open so many doors. A good thing though is that she didn't have any IgE symptoms, right?>
Poor girl--- I hope she is better soon!
I don't have any experience to share regarding the type of eggs, however, my daughter is ok with chicken and egg yolks, but reacts strongly to egg whites. For her, the egg yolk from a boiled egg gives her extra protein and calories. Plus, the rest of the family eats eggs for breakfast daily, so it gives her something to eat that actually looks "normal". If it helps, trialling egg yolk separately may be worth a shot.
I haven't had experience with eggs personally but did read on several other websites that the egg whites area more likely to cause a reaction than the yolk. Not sure if you can cook with just the yolk but maybe.. http://www.webmd.com/allergies/guide/egg-allergy
