If we get a puppy and a kitten at the same time as our new baby, will that prevent our baby from cat and dog allergies?

In brief: Less allergies?

Some studies suggest that children exposed to pets under a year of age, have a somewhat decreased incidence of developing some allergies.
Kids that grow up in farms are less prone to allergic problems. You will be, nevertheless a very busy parent!
