So glad to see you hanging around!
You have been missed!
As far as the nuts go, yes two years old is fine. Unless there is a family allergy, then they may wait until as old as 5 (ask an allergist). I know I waited only one year before I gave some Peanut Butter with the first one. he did fine. I wasn't worried, cause allergies do not run in wither of our families.
***Also, if nut allergies are common in a family, the pregnant woman should refrain from them until after she has delivered the baby and is done breastfeeding -- or at least that is what I was told by a friend in that exact situation!***
Now, with two, I have given the one year old some raw nuts -- no reactions, so I feel ok about it. The more kids you have, the harder it is to not feed them what the other one is eating!
Talk with you soon!
