You wanted to know when it’s okay to introduce foods or products with peanuts in them to a baby, because you’re worried about your baby developing an allergy. And if you or your partner have a severe peanut allergy, then I suggest talking to your pediatrician first and they can give you tailored information. But for the general population, it’s okay to give products and foods with peanuts in them to a baby that’s 6 months of age or older. Now, it’s not a good idea to give them actual raw peanuts, because they’re choking hazards, but you can give them products that have peanuts in them. And this is actually recommended, because research has shown that when introduction of peanut products is delayed, the chance of a child developing an allergy is actually higher. So again, if you have more questions about it, talk with your pediatrician. And if you have more questions in the future for me, feel free to ask them on our Intermountain Moms Facebook and Instagram pages, and recommend us to your friends and family too.
