Are you feeding your kids peanut butter? I haven't let the girls try it yet for a couople of reasons.
1) It is super sticky and Keira lobs food in her mouth like it is an olympic sport. That girl shoves so much food in there that she gags herself on occasion. Remember, she has one (barely there) tooth and 3 more trying to get through. So, out of fear of choking, I have not introduced peanut butter.
2) Isaiah has a friend (whose mom is my friend) who is the same age. I did not introduce PB to Isaiah until he was almost 2, but my friend introduced PB early. Her daughter ended up allergic to tree nuts. Now, was it the early introduction. Who knows? It has made me nervous though. I mean it is possible she would always have a tree nut allergy.
Now,I know that a lot of new research is saying that earlier introduction to high allergy foods might be fine for most kids. We introduced strawberries to the girls pretty early. They love them. So, I don't really hold back on much. Sarafina has even had shellfish. I just cannot bring myself to do PB, yet my life would be a touch easier if I added it in. More food variety for the little twinkles, kwim?
