    Default Peanut Butter and Eggs

    Just wondering when others introduced peanut butter and eggs to their baby. DS is nine months, thanks

    12 months. Would have been sooner but my son had food aversion and barely ate solids much before 18 months

    I gave Peanut Butter at 6.5 months and DS now enjoys it on his toast every morning.

    Eggs I made some scrambled eggs with breastmilk last week (7.5 months)

    I did a fair bit of research into it all and given our family (both sides) have no food allergy history whatsoever, decided it was better to introduce early. Recommendations vary, if you have no history of allergies/reactions to foods, there is research to indicate it is worthwhile introducing earlier.

    I waited until 12 months for peanut butter and haven't tried egg yet. The clinic told me you can now give peanut butter from 6 months if there is no allergy in the family. I don't know if I would risk it though

    Ds had eggs probably just after 6 months but we waited till 12 months for peanut butter. We have no food allergies in our family.

    6 months. If there's no reason to suspect allergy there's no evidence that waiting longer helps, in fact the opposite may be true

    Thanks Ladies No food allergies in the family so thought it might be ok to introduce them to him. Thanks again

    My DS (9mths) is already allergic to dairy and soy, so we are classified high risk.

    Our Paed and Paed Allergist actually encouraged me to introduce both a couple of months go (controlled with step by step stages). New research suggests that waiting can actually increase the risk of an allergy developing, so the earlier the better these days (not before 6mths though).

    Yes, it makes sense seeing as that since they started reccomeding people wait a year the levels of kids with allergy has increased.. Whereas as countries that eat nuts alot and from very early on have very low rates of nut allergy.
