Eating peanut butter while pregnant?
 
My SIL is newly pg w/ her first, she is totally clueless and receiving all kinds of unsolicited advice, most of it bad. Anyway, she is craving peanut butter and someone told her that she shouldn't eat it because it could make the baby allergic. I've never heard that and figured it was prolly a load a crap but thought I would ask you mamas before I told her that. By the way they have no family history of nut allergies. TIA

I think that is crazy!!! I have had 2 pregnancys and both dr and midwife said peanut butter is a great sorce of protien. Tell her to eat all she wants.

:giggle: I have heard that actually, but its a myth. I asked my Dr. about it because I craved p. butter and nutella sandwiches in my 3rd tri :blush: and I wasnt sure he said there is no proof that eating p. butter while preg. will make your baby allergic. It's silly! Tell her to go right on ahead and enjoy it :thumbsup:

I agree, not a biggie. I had heard that if your family has a tendency to be allergic to peanuts or nuts in general to stay away from peanut butter - but I don't know that I buy into that one either.

Peanut allergies can be deadly and I think most people with any family history would be wise to avoid them. Other than that it is fine.

Ha! Thats a good one. I've had 3 pregnancies and ate peanut butter with all of them. In fact it's one of my cravings:)

Yep, definitely a myth. I hated peanut butter until I got preg with DS... I craved peanut butter slathered on cinnamon graham crackers. If that myth is true then my DS would be allergic to pb, but he eats it all the time!!
