Is the soy formula also gluten free? I'm not very informed about formula but that would be the first thing I would check. If you yourself are diagnosed celiac, your baby could very well be responding to gluten even though he/she may not be celiac. Just keep up your investigation, consitpation in a 3mo old is NOT normal, and don't let any doctor tell you "some babies are just constipated". I won't rant, but you could search for my previous rants if you like. Babies' bodies tell us things, we have to interpret their signals, do NOT ignore this signal. He/she is definately reacting to something.





Thanks. We ended up switching her back to her original formula and everything is fine now. She seems to not be able to digest Enfamil, but Similac is great.

My husband, daughter and I all have Celiac so I am not planning on introducing gluten to this little guy at all!


Wow... I've never met anyone besides me and my sister who has Celiac... That's really cool that your husband does too.

Just letting everyone know....

I just got a call from the doctor and my levels are up! My progesterone went from about 13 to 140-something. I'm sooo happy!

Whenever I'm constipated, this is what I do and it is the ONLY thing that works for me. Best part is it's NARURAL and SAFE for anyone!
I boil water, fill a tall mug with it and drink it straight. NO lemon, NO tea or it won't work! Just boiling hot water, as hot as you can stand. It's unbelievable how it works. I did this multiple times when I had stomach surgery and hadn't gone in 4 days and couldn't push, and then I went within the hour. My aunt who is an RN told me about this and I know from experience it works like a charm! :)




Thanks for posting this! I'll definately try it!

Hello there! I have been gluten-free for 5 years and have definitely found staples. I try to find "normal" things I can get anywhere b/c there isn't a health food store in my town.

I, personally, love LUNA bars. They don't say they're gluten free, but they are 100% wheat free, and don't contain any gluten products (except for oats, which can be iffy). They don't bother me at all and I'm very sensitive. Some of the CLIFF bars Are ok too, you just have to read those carefully b/c not all of them are.
I also love yogurt (yo-plait is fine), frozen yogurt, many of the Quaker rice cakes are ok, too.

I'm about 5 weeks pregnant right now and was living on dark chocolate, bananas, and LUNA bars for the majority of the last two weeks but now want everything in sight! Cranberry sauce, carrots w/ BBQ sauce ( I know it's weird), meat, cheese.... It goes on and on!

Also, if you're craving pizza Amy's brand has glutem free one that's really good. An amazing brand that I actually order online and have shipped to me is Sami's Bakery. They have the best gluten free breads, wraps, etc. And they're very reasonably priced. Google Sami's Bakery and it should pop right up. Not everything they have is gluten free though, so sift through it.

ope that helps some :)
