How exciting!! Ds1 (2.5) had a reaction to peanut butter when he was 8 months. Skin prick test showed an allergy to everything except almonds and walnuts. I was meant to do challenges but just didn't get around to planning them since they had to be in hospital but gave him almonds and walnuts regularly. Went back a year later for another skin prick test (they do them annually here) and he had grown out of everything but peanuts! Peanuts was 9mm this past skin prick so they said too severe to try any challenges at this age (if we wanted to) and she said as he gets older the likelihood of him growing out of it lessens. She told us they often grow out of tree nuts, egg and dairy but peanuts is less likely. Fingers crossed.
ETA: I should add the hes's had blood tests to confirm the skin pricks.
Well, today is day 7 of having Nutella and he is fine I spoke to hia teacher so she could keep an eye on him during school, I was giving it to him first thing in the morning so I could keep an eye for the first couple of hours before school.
Sunday I'm going to start cashews with some cashew butter.
