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!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
