My husband was diagnosed with the celiac disease about 3 months ago.

I have two children.

My eldest is 2 and a half and has done the blood test which showed up positive.

My youngest is 9 months old and I have been giving him cereals with his milk (oats etc. that contains gluten). What should I do?

Should I put him also on a gluten free diet or continue giving him the normal cereals?

thanks in advance,

Esme

I would continue giving him gluten and keep an eye on him watching for symptoms. Then when he gets old enough (I've heard 2 but others have done it earlier), have him tested even with no symtpoms.

Yep. The youngest may well have the gene (which you could test for now if you wanted to, but it wouldn't really add any real information to the situation), but he may not have celiac yet. Unless it would make a big difference to take the whole household gluten-free, keep him eating gluten, keep an eye on him, and consider testing him when he's a bit older (regardless of symptoms).
