Can you eat peanut butter when you are breastfeeding? Probably a stupid question but I'm scared of allergiesand she's only 5 days old

I did. My husband has food allergies (not to peanuts) and the only thing I have been cautious about is introducing foods that he allergic to. Basically all I do is introduce them at lunch during the week. That way, if there is a reaction, the pediatrician's office is open and I can easily talk to a nurse. I've never avoided eating anything he is allergic to while nursing, though.

 Just an FYI, it's the tendency toward developing food allergies that can be inherited, not the specific food allergy. Just thought I'd put that out there for people w/family histories of food allergies. I have a nut allergic child, so I've done a lot of research on food allergies.

Quoting Christina807:
