If my hubby has a lot of allergies (dust, grass, cat fur, &others) I know there is a good chance our son will have some or all. Is there a special ped to see?
Can I take measures myself until we find the right ped? I try to keep it as dust and allergen free, but feel I could do more.

The best defense for allergies is to breastfeed. "Protection from allergies is one of the most important benefits of breastfeeding. The incidence of cow's milk allergies is up to seven times greater in babies who are fed artificial baby milk instead of human milk (Lawrence 1994)." http://www.llli.org//NB/NBJulAug98p100.html
As the PP said yes there are Pediatric Specialists.
