Awww....the poor thing!

I thought I'd ask about the eating for anyone else. Sometimes kids are weird like that. Even when they're distressed. Sounds like you have a good handle on what is going on....an OT eating specialist sounds like a good idea. They probably have better ideas, too. :)

 

Hope you get it all figured out.

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.

We used sign language too.  It was before we knew about Celiac and it was for my kids to bond.  My son was 3 1/2 when my daughter was born.  I am told it was not 100% accurate, but it worked.  It was from some books and kid videos.

 

Now that my son needs to take a second language, he is taking sign language.  He is trying to go for a 4 year certification and is considering being an interpreter. ;)

I hope you can find help soon and do something about this.  Truly a two year old shouldn't be screaming about tummy aches for long.  I think if it is a matter of will (what the two year old wants to eat) that you should help the two year old to eat different dishes.  However, if it is a matter of pain, it needs to be solved and fast.

We got a body poster (kid type - labels for the different body parts) to help us better understand our children communicating pain. Sometimes it was easier for them to point to the body chart in their efforts to explain their pain to us. Good luck getting it sorted.
