FPIES often begins in infancy. Your child may have more doctor visits than play dates before they can even say a single word. So how do you connect, engage and interact with them along the way?
FPIES may complicate the simplest activities for you and your child. When struggling to cope, remember the three “P’s”: Practice, Prepare, Participate.
When your child is diagnosed with FPIES, you become more than just a parent; you become an advocate and educator on your child’s behalf.
One of the first thoughts that may come to mind following the diagnosis of FPIES is: “How can my child be safe around other children and food?” Thankfully, with preparedness and planning, your child can experience social inclusion.
