My DD is nearly 1, I'm still BF and have just seen this which is a change in the governments guidelines to say eating peanuts is OK. Apologies if everyone already knows this but I didn't!

My DH has bad hayfever so I was always in two minds about whether to stop eating peanuts or not but decided on reflection not to eat them, hence no snickers or peanut butter for nearly 2 years!!! I thought I'd post this just in case anyone else is in the same position.

I think I'll try eating a bit myself and introduce it slowly that way.

I did not restrict my diet at all whilst breastfeeding - the thought did not once occur to me.

I went to an antenatal BF course Poison, they told me there I think. I'm guessing you restricted your alcohol intake a little?? wink

Yes, I did, because I was co-sleeping, less so because of breastfeeding.

Brilliant, thanks for posting this!

I gave up while pregnant but just couldn't hold out while I was breastfeeding...
