Peanut Butter and Babies

I've been out of "the trenches" for a few years so I had no idea pediatricians were recommending the introduction of peanuts earlier than age 2 or 3.

My girlfriend Alicen has two older children with no peanut allergies and thought she would try it with her third child who is just over a year old.

She has graciously posted her scary experience on her blog The Emmett Crew.
The pictures of his reaction just made my heart ache!

Go check out the story and while you're there I would consider it a personal favor if you would leave her lots of comment love!

Thanks and hopefully this story can spare another child and mommy a very scary ordeal.

No PB over here either. My toddler is highly allergic to Peanut Butter, Soda (not sure what chemical or colorant so we stay clear of all after a major reaction), Coconut, Milk, and Eggs.

She looked just like him when she had her reaction also. Poor little guy.

Looking for something??
