How do I know when is a good time to give my 16 month old peanut butter?

Look out for choking: In healthy kids delaying foods beyond 6m doesn't reduce allergies (& may even increase them). However, i recommend avoiding very allergic foods when kids are on antibiotics or have diarrhea or a tummy illness. With peanut butter, keep in mind that it's thick, sticky texture makes it a real choking risk: so small amounts (perhaps with something ekse) with adult present. ...Read more

Peanut Butter (Definition)

Guidelines from reputable health agencies suggest some steps parents can take to reduce their child's chances of having food and other allergies, although there are no guarantees of success.

Can a 13 month old toddler eat peanut butter?

Yes - and no: From an allergy standpoint, it's ok to give peanut containing things after a year of age. However, that being said, if you spread the peanut butter thick on bread and they take a big bite, the consistency of a big glop of peanut butter could be a choking hazard. If you are spreading it very thin on a cracker, etc, and are watching carefully as they eat small bites, you should be ok. ...Read more

Is it ok to give my healthy 16 month old son a 6 oz bottle of pediasure everyday? I usually give him before his nap time. He drinks cows milk too.

Is it ok to give my healthy 16 month old son a 6 oz bottle of pediasure everyday? I usually give him before his nap time. He drinks cows milk too.

It's likely ok,but..: He should not get in the habit of getting his nutrition and calories from supplements, rather than eating a healthy and varied diet. He does not NEED Pediasure if healthy and of normal weight and growth. Indeed, you run the risk of obesity with the extra calories from daily Pediasure. Finally, Pediasure is hardly cheap. Spend the money on a book for the child, and start a different nap routine. ...Read more

My 3.5 month old ebf baby didn't poop for 3 days. When she did it was very smelly and thick, like soft butter or gooey peanut butter. Is that normal?

My 3.5 month old ebf baby didn't poop for 3 days.  When she did it was very smelly and thick, like soft butter or gooey peanut butter.  Is that normal?

Normal: Breastfed babies can go 5-6 days without pooping. Formula fed babies 1-2 days. Breastmilk poop can be green, yellow, brown or tan; watch for blood in the stool or signs of irritability with stooling; often times the breastmilk color is just a reflection of what "mom" ate and what "baby" need; what's not needed gets pooped out! ...Read more

Is creamy like peanut butter poop normal for 3 month old baby who hasn't pooped in a week but normally does every other day & more loose?

Is creamy like peanut butter poop normal for 3 month old baby who hasn't pooped in a week but normally does every other day & more loose?

Probably OK: It is not unusual for babies to have change in stool pattern as they grow. . Also, it is normal for breastfed babies to have longer periods of time with no stools. Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. OK if bottle fed too. ...Read more

At what age can I give a teen the right to make his meals (besides peanut butter sandwiches)?

Confusing question: A successful parent will use life events to continuously teach a kid how to fend for themselves. This may require significant monitoring in the early stages, with reminders about hygiene and cleaning up after.A kid at or older than 8 usually has the ability to do such things when they are given the chance.
