My allergist recommended that I allow my ds to occasionally have peanuts to keep his body from reacting to peanuts at one sitting. He has had the spt and rast and has no allergies. Therefore, we do let him have something small every now and then with appropriate clean up procedures. Although he only does this if his sister is away for the afternoon or evening.

Every once in awhile we have a peanutty treat (older ds w/nka, dh and me) but we all LOVE pb, and it's to satisfy that taste. We are very careful about clean up too and don't do it very often.

strangly, my other kids have never cared for pb. However, they all went trick or treating last week and my husband was going to bring all of the candy to work with him, but instead I nabbed all the pb cups and stuck them in the freezer in a ziploc bag. My husband and I enjoyed these as little treats after the kids went to bed!!!! Properly cleaned and wrappers disposed of safely of course.
I would not feed it to my 2 yo and 1 yo only only because of their age. I don't need more allergies!

NO,
I do not and would not allow my non allergic child eat my childs allergen , nor do I or my husband eat anything that contains peanuts or nuts, when she gave them up so did we.
We have allowed our non allergic child to eat may contain or processed on equipment when she is not in the same location, and are very careful to clean up afterwards.
That is my comfort level, I can not eat what will kill my child.

I do let my older ones eat PB/nut items when they are somewhere else and DS with PA is not with them. I do not allow [i]them[/i] to eat any thing with any nuts in our house. DH and I some times have things with nuts such as almonds/pecans/walnuts after ds goes to bed. DS with PA has tested neg to those nuts and I feel safe having them in the house but only for DH and I and we keep them out of reach of all DSs. I did let my older 2 keep their "may contains/facility" from TOTing, but I also keep those up out of reach and ration them out.

I agree with this 100%. We found out my ds had PA a year ago, and I have not any nuts since that day. If he can't have neither can I. My other son who is not allergic is not able to eat things that may contain nuts in the house. However, like for his halloween party at school, he can eat things that "may contain" but he is 5 and asks all by himself if something "has nuts" and explains he can't have it because of his little bro. I am so proud of him to do that!!!

I agree. No
My home is peanut free.
Now on Halloween, I looked at every piece of candy in the bag, gave the next trick or treater at my house alll of the peanuty candy and I quickly scarfed down all the twix, milky way and 3musketeers, to provide further safety. ahhh what a good mom!
I had to, of course :)

My home is peanut free as well. I only started to let my ds have a peanut treat when we were out and his sister was away for a good four hours at the time. Originally though none of us had any p/tn foods until my ds was at least six. My dh used to have the odd p/tn snack at work but he no longer eats them. I have the odd tn if my dd is at her grandparents say, but that's been maybe five times in almost nine years. I don't find them all that appealing anymore. I hope to avoid pn allergy with my ds by him having enough that his body is ok with them, jmo.

I must add to my earlier post to say, we too are a pn and tna free house. With the exception of those pb cups from halloween (which are gone:)) we do not have any of it in the house.
I will have to say though, my comfort level is different than many. We are not as strict on "made in facilities". We do not eat "may contains" though. But this all has to do with my dd's tests and clinical history with pn and tna. It's a very long story.
Anyway, eggs is a whole other thing. Very, very, very strict about eggs. Very, very reactive to eggs.
Anyway.

I did the same , ate the non nutty choc bars after Halloween, my husband offered to have just one of my old fave's with peanuts , I couldn't even consider the thought, it made me feel sick.

We let the not pa kiddos eat "may contains" but generally do not allow obvious peanut products in our home. The only exception to that rule is on Halloween, and the peanut products leave the house the next work day.
Joey has recently decided that he won't eat obvious peanut products at all... we've generally allowed him to when he was away from Jason before now.
