    Default Question about BF'ing and Peanuts/Nuts

    So I have read that you should not eat peanuts while BF'ing at first because of the peanut allergy. Does this mean all nuts or just peanuts? I've been eating walnuts in my oatmeal for breakfast and now I'm worried about it!

    I think I would be very cautious if I had a nut allergy in the family. We don't have a history of it on either side and I did eat peanut butter while bf with no problems to my LO.
