Breastfeeding When Exposed To Gluten !help!
0

8 posts in this topic

I had a cross-contamination exposure last night. It wasn't a bad one but I have a sour stomach today but no diarrhea.

The only thing is Im breastfeeding my three week old.

Should I use pumped milk for a day or two?

How long if so?

Will he be alright if I keep nursing him? Ive been nursing him since the exposure last night.

Ive been trying to down a bunch of water to help.

I don't have too much pumped reserved. And since its sunday my allergist is closed.

Has your little one beed dx with a wheat allergy?

Not all Mom's pass proteins through breastmilk. I would continue to nurse your little one through this unless there is a life threatening wheat allergy which I would be surprised if you did have a dx of that this young.

Hugs and keep up the good work!

If your LO isnt gluten-intolerant, There isn't any evidence that it will cause any problems.

You should be fine to keep nursing. If any gluten passes through, you should also have some antigliadin antibodies bodies pass though the ameliorate the effects! I was glutened a few times while nursing my youngest last year with no problems at all. Congratulations on your new wee baby!

Both he and I have had incredibly painful gas cramps in the last day or so but he also wouldn't fall asleep unless he was at the boob. I got him some gripe water but was hesitant to introduce it to his digestive system and I started taking probiotics in the hopes they would also pass to him( some studies say they pass through breastmilk some say they don't )

Are you the gluten intolerant one? I am and am currently nursing and got glutened and my little one reacted too...... currently on a gluten, dairy, soy, egg, peanut free diet to figure out what else is bothering her.

Definitely keep nursing! There is absolutely no reason to pump and dump. Let's say your baby is also gluten intolerant. Nursing the absolute best thing for him. You are doing a great thing to protect his gut, potentially, from developing the same issues. And, if he does, you are giving him the most digestible food there is. And, if it turns out you actually have a virus, you are also protecting him from getting it.

Congratulations and good luck!

I agree with nicolebeth about the need to keep nursing!
