Peanutbutter Sandwiches

I was wondering when you introduced peanutbutter sandwiches to your lo's. My dh was feeding our dd the other day while he himself was eating a pb&j and he gave her alittle bit. I told him to hold off on it, but our dd seems to really like it. What do you all think? She did not seem to show an allergic reaction to it.

I think the general guideline is to introduce pb at 12 months if there is no history of peanut allergy in the family, and 24 months if there is a history. My 15 month old loves pb&j.

My pediatrician told me 2 years old. Just be cautious, they don't always show a reaction the first time.

Thank you ladies, I thought I had read 12 months too. She just turned one so maybe I put a little bit on a toast for her and check it out. Thanks again.

I read that pb is a choking hazard as well for children under three - thought I'd pa__s that on

I was told at dd's 1 year appointment that she could now have peanut b___ter. SuzieQ, you are right, it can be a choking hazzard. I would just recommend the obvious...that being to spread it very thin. I'll save the thick slabs of peanut b___ter for the roof of my dogs mouth!!! lol

it's generally stated at 2 years for allergies and it IS a choking hazard because they don't generally chew it. That being said, we have no allergies anywhere in our family so I rebelled and Mason eats occasional PBJ sandwhiches and has never reacted. I do give him very tiny bites of it since the PB is so sticky.
