TrentsMom replied to TrentsMom's topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseTrent is now 8 months. I did not nurse so he has been on formula since day 1. I have been making his baby food since he was 6 months. Unlike many celiacs Trent is a big boy. 26 lbs at 8 months and very tall. It's snacks I'm having a difficult time with. He already has 8 teeth so chewing isn't a major issue. Unfortunately he has gone thru 4 days on gluten which I was unaware of. A friend made him stew which was cross contaminated. 4 days of screaming and now sleep for either of us. Is there anything comforting I can give a baby?
TrentsMom posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseHi there, my son Trent was diagnosed as a celiac at 6 months old. He is now only 8 months old and we're dealing with a lot of education, trial and error and many sleepless and screaming nights as we start our journey. Our house and lives are making the transition to a diabetic (dh is a type 1 diabetic), kid friendly (picky eating 4 year old daughter) and now gluten free. I'm having a difficult time finding many gluten free infant snacks. Baby and toddler mum mums have been great. I live in Toronto Ontario and will be looking into some further assistance, support and guidance. If anybody has and advice, tips, tricks etc. I'm all ears.
