Okay, so what is the rule about nuts and nut butters? I know nuts are a choking hazard as well as a high allergy risk. I've heard no peanut butter until 2yrs, is that right? But what about almond butter? I asked my ped about that at my son's 12-month visit and she looked alarmed, like I had suggested feeding him mud. I eat a lot of almond butter, and also walnuts, since I'm semi-vegetarian and they are great sources of protein and good fat. I stopped eating peanuts or peanut butter when I was pregnant. Maybe I should have stopped eating other nuts as well, I don't know. In any case, have any of you introduced nuts or nut butters yet to your LO, and if so, when and what kind?
Also, my partner made a delicious paella tonight, and I think my DS would LOVE it, but it does have some ground up almonds in it. Does that mean I can't give it to him tomorrow? My son is 13 months, and hasn't shown signs of any allergies to date.
