Hello all, my son is 23 months old. My Peditrician said to wait to give him peanut butter until age 3. My nephew was allergic for years & recently grew out of it. A friend of mine suggested putting peanut butter on his arm & seeing if his skin has a reaction. If it doesn't he's not allergic. Has anyone ever heard or done this? I want to give him peanut butter but scared too. He has had other foods that were touching / or near nuts & never had an issue . Also if I were to give it to him & he was allergic, a reaction would happen instantly right? Not in hours? I appreciate your thoughts.
