Yes! But speak with your baby’s healthcare provider first. 

If a baby’s doctor or other provider has told you your baby has severe eczema, or you know your baby has an egg allergy, then giving infant-safe peanut foods early, between ages 4 and 6 months, is even more important.  

Before you give peanut-containing foods to your baby the doctor may want to run some allergy tests or refer you to an allergy specialist. The doctor may also suggest that you give peanut foods in the office the first time.  

Keep in mind, if your baby has only mild or moderate eczema, then it is safe to give peanut-containing foods when your baby is ready for solid food. You don’t need to talk with the doctor first.
