We didn't meet with success when our son was exposed to peanuts at 6 mos. He reacted. Then reacted again at 8 mos. The problem is, when they are babies they can't tell you they're having a reaction. If their tongue is swelling, or they're getting internal hives, they can't tell you. You have to wait until you see it on the outside, and by then it might be too late. I think this is a very very very bad idea, given our personal experience.
