Peanut Butter Smacks

I fed Julia peanut butter for the first time the other day. I think she liked it, though I'm not sure it liked her. While we were eating the stuff, some red bumps appeared on her face. It really didn't look like hives or a rash, it was just 4 bumps, they looked kind of like bug bites, around her mouth. And then they disappeared. My neighbor mentioned that you are supposed to wait until the kid is 2 to feed them peanut butter (is that what you've heard? I didn't know, I swear!). In any event, I think we'll be waiting a little while before we feed it to her again (maybe the next time we give her some will be right before a regularly scheduled doctor's appointment, just in case). BUT, she did make some cute smacking noises when the sticky PB was in her mouth, and I got a video. Enjoy.

Two years is correct...if there is someone in the close family with a peanut allergy. That's what my pediatrician said when we thought the same thing.

Cute video!
