  • I personally do not believe this. I ate a lot of PB when I was pregnant with my daughter. She isn't allergic and she actually likes PB. I would only be concern if you have other family members who are allergic.

  • I have heard this from many sources. Of course, I heard it after I had already had my son. As a vegetarian, I eat a lot of peanut butter for protein. There isn't anyone in my family or my husband's family with a peanut allergy. However, my son is HIGHLY allergic to peanuts. So I don't really know if this is true or not but in my case, it was. Personally, I wouldn't take the chance if I were to ever have another baby. Food allergies are a living hell so do whatever you can to prevent them.

  • In my case this was not true. I at A LOT of peanut better when I was pregnant because it was the one thing that I could eat without getting sick.

  • I don't think that this is true either. I craved PB when I was preggo and my son isn't allergic to it. It is actually one of his favorite foods too.
