[B] I was surprised and disappointed when it went on to explain that mothers with allergies should not eat peanuts during pregnancy. (It may have listed tree nuts also. Ican't remember.) I tell everyone I know who is pregnant not to eat peanuts whether they are allergic or not.
That's silly...why would they state that if you are pregnant and allergic to nuts that you should not eat them? If you are allergic to nuts you would not eat them at any time, regardless if you had a bun in the oven.
I am like you, I tell everyone I know that is preggo not to eat nuts while pregnant or breastfeeding. I *was* told to eat PB while pregnant since I anemic. There is no history of food allergies on either of our sides, but my 3 yr old son has PA.

CorinneM1, I believe I posted about this in katiee's Media thread about what pregnant women are being told now.
There are no food allergies on either side of the family (mine or their Father's) and yet my son is PA.
If you look at both katiee's thread, and also the one I posted under Media re Nestle's baby hand-out magazine, I, myself, wouldn't have considered myself "high risk" for a food allergic child. I have suffered from environmental allergies since I was quite young but that's it. No environmental allergies on his Father's side, no asthma, no ezcema. We weren't atopic as children.
Also, because I hate pb and have since I was 4, I know that I didn't eat copious amounts of peanut products while I was pregnant either.
With simply my EA's, and only on my side, would I be considered "high risk" for a food allergic child? I have no idea. Probably another idea has popped into my head [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]

I just found out that my 11 month old is allergic to peanuts (among other things) and the allergy doc told me that it's not eating peanuts when your pregnant that's the problem, it's when your breastfeeding. Your baby gets their first taste from your breastmilk so that when they actually eat it, their bodies have the histamine over-reaction to it. We are planning to have another baby in the near future and the doc said no peanuts while breastfeeding.

[b]I was wondering if anyone had revised copies of What to Expect When You're Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, and What to Expect the Toddler Years?
ABreitner had posted in the other thread that she went by this book and fed her child pb something. Isn't this the book that *all* of us use now when we're pregnant and then we continue with the series as our children age?
NOPE! I hated What to expect when you are expecting. I hated the tone & the way they presented the information. I threw it out & never bought any of the others. I much prefered the Dr. Sears books.
