    I think they recommend introducing PB after 2 or even 3, I would say since your LO is already allergic to eggs you better withhold peanut butter for the time being.

    By the way your LO is 2 days older than mine.

    w/ pp. Allergic children should stay away from peanuts/pb as long as possible. Peanuts are a choking hazard even if no allergy so later is better there for sure. Try Sun Butter - it's yummy

    my son (15 months) has peanut butter pretty much every day, but he's never had any allergies. i agree with the pps to hold off on it for a while since your lo already has a food allergy.
