Leaving your child in someone else's care can be difficult, especially if your child has a special medical need like a food allergy.

In this episode, Pam and Dr. Hoyt discuss strategies to find the right person to babysit or nanny your kiddo and to prepare that person to manage food allergies.

Plus, check out their Babysitter Guide, a tool you should tape onto your refrigerator right next to your kiddo's anaphylaxis action plan and auto-injectors whenever you leave your kiddo with the sitter!
