A new article released this past week encourages introducing gluten to the baby's diet in the "window" of time. My kids were both breastfed and "solid" food was started at the perfect window, they are now on a gluten free diet for life.
Other than that, it has to be you and your doctor's decision how you will proceed.

I think it is going to be hard because kids eat crackers and cherrios so does anyone know what to feed the gluten-free baby for a snack or while you are out?

Of course, you'll want to stay on a strictly gluten-free diet.
