Gluten Free Toddler... Soon To Be Milk Free?
Posted 31 December 2011 - 05:58 PM
I am self diagnosed celiac / NCGI ... whatever the case may be. My hubby and I decided to put our DS on a gluten-free diet a few months after he started ingesting gluten due to his awful bm's and diaper rash. Those have cleared up since we changed his diet. And his mystery fevers went away too!
Now we are starting to transition him off formula (he was breastfed till the age of 10 months but I couldn't sustain my supply by pumping at work). At that point we switched him to a cow's milk formula and he has continued to thrive. At 15 months he's. A hefty 27 lbs.
Now the daycare wants to transition him to the toddler room but they only give them milk or water in that room. DS won't touch milk, though. And to be honest I don't drink much milk at all and never thought it was too healthy for humans to drink. At the moment, we are thinking of cutting out his formula during the day and having the daycare only give him water. He will continue to get formula in the morning and evening. Then when we phase out the formula he will basically only get water to drink.
Does this sound OK? We will have no problem making sure he gets lots of green veggies to get his calcium since I make all our food from scratch.
People I've mentioned this to look at me like I'm crazy. Mind you they're the same ones who don't flinch at the idea of feeding their own kids Kraft dinner with a side of hotdogs!
Thanks for any input you can give.
