I remember reading a thread a long time ago on a different board about what age moms planned to let their little ones have peanut butter for the first time. I guess with so many being allergic to it it's kind of a scary food to give for the first time. It seems a lot of people want to wait until the child is quite a bit older.

When do you think you'll introduce peanut butter? Have you talked to your pedi about it? Do they have an opinion on it? Anyone in your family allergic or is it not so much a concern for you?

General concensus appears to be to wait until 1 year old, but if there is history in your family of nut allergies, it is recommended to wait until 3 yrs old.

It's not something I ever ate until I fell pregnant, then I wanted it I couldn't eat it during pregnancy or BFing as DHs sister takes a skin rash when in contact with nuts of any form. I was advised to steer clear! As for trying Kirsty with it... My gut instinct tells me she has absolutely no allergies to it as I eat it on my toast every morning, and therefore I guess you could say it's on my hands, and I'm touching her (not that I eat like an animal using my hands Sounded bad!!)

I would be most likely to try her with some when she manages to eat toast better, right now I have to tear it into small pieces or else she packs the whole piece in her mouth then gags! But yeah, when she learns to bite and eat toast I'll probably try her.

May I just say... I adore peanut butter

We started it with Ben probably around 14-15 months - he likes crackers with peanut butter, but doesn't really care for peanut butter on toast.

So far no signs of allergies, which I am VERY thankful for because I am a peanut butteraholic!

many thanks to trish for this cutest of siggies!

I started giving it to Oliver after he turned one. He has only had it a few times and very little. I wasn't too worried about it.
