Re: can i eat peanut butter yet? ...
I've heard the same thing, but to be honest, I practically lived on peanut butter when I was pregnant and had gestational diabetes. The only consequence it seems to have had created in my son is a big, big love of peanut butter. I suspect -- and I have no scientific knowledge on this matter, so take it for what it's worth -- that a family history of food allergies is a much greater predictor of allergies in a child than a mother's consumption of any given item.

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
