  1. Can A Baby Have Dh?

    All these things said, there are a LOT of things that cause newborn skin problems - and some are totally normal as baby's skin adjusts to a new environment. Frequent bathing (once a day is too much for many babies), lotions, detergent on clothing/bedding, rough textures... lots of things cause skin issues that have nothing to do with food, especially in really young ones (even three or four months old!)
  2. Can A Baby Have Dh?

    There are no formulas I know of that have gluten in them. (Oh, I could certainly be wrong, but if someone knows of one, please post it, because it's very very not common.)
  3. Thanksgiving Potluck - Help!

    Make your own food and bring it with you (just a plate for you, not whole dishes). When you get there, just say "I've recently been diagnosed with food intolerances. The best thing for me to do right now, until I figure out all the convoluted details, is to stick with stuff that I know is safe and won't make me sick." You do not need to offer any explanation beyond that if you don't want to, and using the "newness" of it all as an excuse is probably a pretty good idea.
  4. I do not know of any such booksout there. As long as you are revovered, and remain strictly gluten free, there should be no difference with your pregnancy compared to someone without celiac.
  5. Sounds like fairly normal breastfeeding issues. It also sounds like you might have wither oversupply and/ or overactive letdown. I highly recommend reading everything you can on (GREAT respite on breastfeedif), go to a La Leche League meeting for some help, and maybe find a lactation consultant. (Might even look for a postpartum doula!)
  6. I Just Want The Holidays To Be Over

    Either make the things you usually have gluten free at home and bring food for yourself, eat before hand, or invite people over and make it all gluten-free. Traditions have to change eventually, and all of it can be gluten free, likely without anyone knowing.
  7. Go find a new doc. This one just doesn't want to do his job. After that experience, I wouldn't trust him in general.
  8. Getting Enough Calcium & Vitamins

    Oh, and weight bearing exercise, and lots of it!
  9. Getting Enough Calcium & Vitamins

    Studies have shown that supplementing magnesium, necessary for the use of calcium to build bone, is even more important in celiacs than calcium. Make sure you're getting ample D as well.
  10. Sarcasm About Celiac

    It's not celiac that is the problem here, apparently. Rather, its a rude, self-centered person.
  11. Child Back In Hospital

    Good luck. My GP, around the time I decided to go gluten free, said there was an increased risk of pneumonia in celiacs. I haven't looked it up in ages to confirm, however.
  12. SPD is also what came to my mind when I read the post. Or some level of sensory integration issue.
  13. Sarcasm About Celiac

    I haven't gotten any crap, sarcasm, or I-know-better in the eight years I've been gluten free. I've gotten truly inquisitive "can you have a little bit?" questions, who really want to know the answer and accept the answer of "no", and that's about as crazy as it's gotten for me. I know some of it is my geographic area's culture being more cognizant of this type of issue, the friends and family that I know, and some of it is my attitude towards the whole thing.
  14. Social Situations

    "No thanks. I have food intolerances." That's my reply. (I'm in an area that's always been pretty good about not questioning the "intolerance" portion of that statement. If I were in an area that were different, I'd have no hesitations about lying and saying "allergies" instead.) Face it, you cannot have 100% separation between work and personal life. Not only is it not possible unless you don't drive your own car to work, you always wear the same uniform, and you never put up a picture or take a personal call anywhere near a coworker. And if you really try to have as close to 100% separation between the two, you will likely find that you alienate your coworkers. Because people are social. They like to find common interests. So, if someone says "Do you have any hobbies?" and you just say "Nothing related to work", you're going to look aloof and weird. I'm not saying you have to blend the two together completely! And nor do I mean to imply that the walking a line that makes you comfortable is easy! Far from it. But pick your battles and don't make situations harder on yourself by trying to keep a huge separation that might work better as a more moderated separation.
