Who are we and why are we here

So we have been live for a while now and thanks to you lovely people its been a success, so I thought it was about time for you to get to know us a little better.

I am Sarah and mum to 2 year old Riley and we live in West Yorkshire with daddy, Sean. Riley is our own special little miracle 🙂 I have been very blessed in that I can be a stay at home mum which suits me just fine. I spent a very long time working my way to a very successful career but it became so insignificant the minute Riley was born.

So we were happily plodding along with our little man and before we knew it 17 months had passed us by and then he got a very normal cold which went on and on and on and then the sickness and nasty nappies started. After 6 weeks and countless trips to the doctors being told it was a virus and that he had a swollen throat which was why he only wanted porridge or yoghurt,  mum and I thought it could be lactose. So we went lactose free and hey presto within 48 hours a dramatic change. Then 4 weeks later another cold and it started all over again. This time no messing I charged into doctors. So we went dairy free and egg free and also tomato free and all was going well.

So how did we get from that to Allergy Buddies?

Well on our first really good week we went to an Christmas party and there was wrapped chocolate so obviously he was bringing it to me but happy with the ‘lets save it for later’ answer knowing I could swap it when we got home. Then he comes up to me seconds later eating a bit. Someone had unwrapped it and given it to him. I was devastated. An hour later the sickness began! So I started looking for allergy alert products. Nothing struck me as it was all definite allergies and I was pretty sure he was intolerant and I think it’s very important to know the difference. So I started playing with ideas and found a fabulous designer and hey presto.

I love seeing the pictures of people wearing my products and knowing mums and dads feel that little bit more reassured.

So that’s us and nice to meet you 🙂

About Us

Who are we?

Allergy Buddies are custom made products to alert everyone of a child’s allergy or intolerance.

Inspiration

Ever had an instance at a crèche, party, play-gym where someone has given your child something that made them ill? Yes me too. I’m sure like me you want to keep your child safe and that is where Allergy Buddies comes in. My little chap is so far intolerant to diary, eggs and we think citric acid as well as hayfever of every description and pet allergies. So I decided to create a brand that would allow a child’s allergy/intolerance to be easily identified by any carer, teacher and other parents and to help prevent those dreaded slips.
