Help me introduce my peanuts to peanuts.

My kids are now 2 yrs and 7 months and we're going to be introducing them to peanut butter for the first time. Their pediatrician says it's safe. If you have direct experience with this can you please tell me at what age you introduced your kids to nuts and how it went? I'm specifically trying to figure out what possible allergic reaction warning signs we should be looking out for and how we should react to them.

Obviously, we'll make sure to do this during the day when the pediatrician is open and we can get them there quickly. How severe does a reaction have to be before we rushing them to a doctor? To the emergency room? Also, how long should we keep an eye on them for a possible allergic response?
Is there anything else we should keep in mind in case one of them has a reaction?
Anything you might be able to share to help calm a couple of nervous parents would be appreciated!
