I have adult-onset PA. I was born in 1949 and was breast fed until about 6-9 months. This was in New Zealand where peanuts and peanut products weren't commonly used. I only remember eating Spanish peanuts in a specific type of cookies that my mother made. My first taste of peanut butter was probably in my early teens.
My son was born in 1975. He had nothing but breast milk until the age of 6 months when I started to introduce solid foods. I nursed him until he was two.
However, when I was pregnant, I craved peanut butter and celery and ate a ton of it.
My son has no food allergies but he does get pretty bad environmental allergies.

I was adopted at 11 months old, having apparently spent a goodly amount of time in hospital waiting for decision on a potential hip problem. So, formula-fed, I assume.
I didn't avoid anything (except caffeine and alcohol) while pregnant with or nursing all 3 kids.
DD weaned herself at 6months, DS1 at 3 months, DS2 was BF and soy-formula from birth - not enough mom's milk, poor latching, no interest in nursing/eating, and digestive troubles with regular formula.
No one suggested that I watch what I consumed when I was struggling to nurse DS2 - 13.5 years ago. Breast-feeding him lasted about a month.
DD was 8 when diagnosed TNA. DS2 would have been 2, and just tapering off soy formula onto cow's milk - which he was beginning to tolerate in small quantities.
DD is now also PA, much OAS, enviro' allergies, neither son has any discernible allergies at all.
DH has asthma and OAS and became TNA (some) and shellfish allergic as a young adult. I am enviro' only.

Very interesting... I was indeed formula fed and look at my DD... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] However, she was nursed for 13 months and exclusively for the first 9 months. So I can only imagine what else she would be allergic to without my milk
Great food for thought, thanks [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
DD, 4 years old, PA, MA & EA!
DS, 16 months, no allergies thus far!!!

My mother tried to breastfeed me for several weeks, but I was so severely lactose intolerant that she turned to formula.
My husband's mother had the same problem with him.
1976 for the two of us. Our baby is still an alien space pod inside my belly.

1964, had formula?
This may reduce mom guilt for avoidance/non avoidance. But now moms will have to guilt more over breast or bottle.

I was born in '69. Breast fed for a year. Was spit-uppy/rashy.
DH was born in '62. Exclusively formula fed. BTW, he was extremely colicky and reportedly cried all night, every night for a year.
