There is also very strong research to suggest that there is no connection between eating peanuts during pregnancy and a child developing a peanut allergy. Some studies have shown that countries where peanuts are introduced early have a lower incidence of peanut Allergies.

There is very strong research to suggest that women who refrain from peanuts and products with peanuts in them are less likely to cause their child to develop a peanut allergy.

How long between eating peanuts and breastfeeding?

Although not widely practiced in North America, the eating of nuts during pregnancy in many countries is as strongly discouraged as drinking. The reason for this is that although the food is processed by the mothers body, it is unable to be processed fully by the fetus. There are a number of studies that have concluded that the introducing of nuts during the pregnancy and first five years of life can contribute greatly to the contraction of nut allergies. My medical advice would be to abstain from eating nuts during your pregnancy and breast feeding period, as this could cause your child to gain such allergies. Take care, and good luck. Dr. B.
