I'm pretty sure right around the 1yr mark is when we did with our daughter. She loved both and luckily no allergies!

I was told to wait till 2 yrs on the pbj but i later found out my sister gave my daughter a Reeses and she was fine so she got the pbj sometimes after 1. Lol

I think the rules changed regarding what can and shouldn't be given to babies.. I give my 9 month old scrambled eggs and she seems fine... I am cautious about peanut butter only because it could be a choking hazard due to the stickiness...

The rules have changed there Is no proof that delaying certain foods will prevent allergies I gave my son peanut butter blended with fruit at 7 months. I do however have children's benedryl in my house ask a pharmacist what dose is best according to your baby's weight. If there ever was an allergic reaction give them a dose to slow it down and take them straight to emergency

We did eggs at a year. It took a few tries, mostly due to texture, I think. We waited a little longer on nuts and actually started with almond butter. We introduced in midweek at bfast because dad's side has known tree nut allergies, but no issues. We then tried pnut butter the same way (Peanuts aren't actually nuts so reactions can be different)

My daughter tried eggs around 8 months and peanut butter and jelly around 9-10 months!

You can give eggs and PB by age 12months. Start one at a time and give it 4-5 days or so before introducing the other, just to be sure there isn't an allergy with these two foods. Make sure you only use a thin layer of peanut butter and it can be a choking hazard.

*that should say "PB can be a choking hazard"... Use a thin layer.
