peanuts/peanut butter

Is it safe to eat these while pregnant?

No one in my family or my husbands family is allergic to peanuts... but can eating peanuts during pregnancy increase my babies risk of an allergy?

Peanut butter is good for u and baby. Baby doesn't have any allergies while in the womb

I went through a phase of eating peanut butter & jelly sandwiches every night before bed.. you'll be fine!! (((:

Eating peanuts and other foods people are commonly allergic to can actually prevent the baby from being allergic to them. But.. it hasn't been tested very much.

Eat away. It is only dangerous if YOU have a peanut allergy. Because obviously you don't want to get sick while pregnant.

Ok good because I love it! I read online that some mums who had a lot of peanut better while pregnant noticed that their babies got skin allergies from it when they fed them anything with peanuts :/
