I gave DS honey nut cheerios when he first started eating them since that is what I bought for me to eat. We have no history of nut allergies though which is why they are saying to wait until 3 or what ever the age is to introduce nuts.
Do you you a family history of allergies? If not then more than likely your little one is fine
Quoting Maebaby2012:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Spencer Pratt:</b>" Do you have a history if nut allergies in ... [snip!] ... if nut allergies in your family?"</blockquote> Bil is allergic to everything it kind of skips aroind in his family"
Well tell MIL to watch DD and be sure there are no signs of the allergy. She should be familiar with them if BIL is allergic.
