Big hugs, mom! You may want to try using sign language. We found it very helpful for one of our children that was a very late talker. And my most classic celiac child has been distressed for a long time, and I think a lot of it is related to chronic belly pain. It can be very difficult to manage, and your child may have some chronic pain issues made worse by food. For our daughter, eating would often intensify and make worse the pain, so eating can become terrifying.
For iron, we found gluten free Floradix to be helpful, as it is liquid. Good luck sorting this all out. You may need to think long and hard about the daycare arrangements. Is a gluten free diet feasible there? Cross contamination issues abound in care settings, and you need a compassionate carer that understands, appreciates and acknowledges the responsibilities of feeding a diet. I would be providing all of your child's food if the carer is unwilling to make the necessary accommodations
My super silly red siren is my guiding light. She has been a tremendous lesson for me in how gluten affects different people in very different ways. She is a super duper silly girl that was simply born that way. I have no idea why I am so blessed to have her guidance.
