That beautiful creature you see above is The Peanut Butter Baby, and it’s a girl. She is currently 23 weeks old and expected November 6th! The wife and I are extremely excited and we’re very happy to share the news with everyone. As a father-to-be, I’m nervous and excited all at once. There are many things I need to learn, like how to hold a baby. Currently, I hold babies like a football – and I’ve never even played football. But I’m sure that will come naturally after a few days. The thing I’m most nervous about is the chance that my little girl is allergic to peanut butter. I mean, I’d probably keep her, but I’d have to put a lock on my peanut butter closet and only consume it inside the closet… Until then, read on to play a Guess-Her-Name Game and see my vision of Peanut Butter Baby’s future.

The Name:

Care to know her name? Rearrange the 7 letters at the bottom of this photo to spell our little girl’s name!

The Future?

Besides perfect health and phenomenal intelligence, my only other hope is that she is born with an intense love for peanut butter (and no allergies). Something like this:

    Congratulations! That is so exciting! And I think I got her name- Juliana? And good luck with the peanut butter non-allergy :)

    Congratulations! What fun!! We’re expecting our own peanut this fall. It’s a wonderful experience and you’ll love being a Daddy. If you have specific questions about food allergies, feel free to connect with me and I can share some info and tips (for instance, did you know that just 1.2% of kids have peanut allergy…and that it’s not recommended to avoid peanuts during pregnancy, breast feeding or in early infant feeding?). Enjoy this time – it’s so much fun!

      Thank you! Congrats to you as well! So many peanuts!

      1.2% is much lower than I thought. Any my wife isn’t avoiding peanuts now, but she should still consume them while breastfeeding? And what do you mean by early infant feeding?

      • PeanutRD says:

        The evidence doesn’t support avoiding during breast feeding. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that potentially allergenic foods, including peanuts, can be introduced once a baby has started eating other solids (like rice cereal and vegetables) at 4-6 months. There’s no need to delay past this time. Of course, if you have a family history of food allergies or additional questions, it’s a good idea to discuss it with your pediatrician. =)

    Oh, and of course, peanuts should in introduced in a safe way! Peanuts themselves could present a choking hazard to little ones while they’re still learning to chew and swallow, so better to introduce peanut butter – even thinned with a bit of breast milk or formula (baby peanut butter smoothie?!).

  4. MAJOR congratulations!!!!

    Congratulations to you! I had mine a couple of years ago – quite an adventure so far. Breastmilk is recommended for the first six months – I never did try mixing it with peanut butter. We did baby-led weaning once his pincer-grasp developed. Sweet potato chunks. cucumbers. I suspect anything can be slathered with peanut butter, though. :) It’ll be so fun! You’ll love it. Babies are awesome.
