My 9 Month Old And Celiac

16 August 2012 - 06:24 AM

I haven't posted in a very very long time.

I was dx with Celiac May 2009. Moderate soy intolerance, but no other issues with other allergens that I know of. Haven't been tested for other sensitivities.

I started LO on solids a little after 6 months and she's done extremely well with it. I'm curious though as to what to look for when/if she shows any sensitivity to anything.

We had a scare a couple days ago after I introduced hard cheddar cheese. She LOVES it, but had two bowel movements that smelled like death itself died in her diaper, green slime and what looked to be curds of cheese. I always introduce one thing at a time so that I know when/if she has issues, that it must be the last thing. Well, the next days she spiked a fever of 102.4, then yesterday had a rash. Turned out to be roseola :\

ANYways, how will I know she has an issue with any allergens? So far she handles whole yogurt just fine. She's had strawberries, bananas, peas, broccoli, green beans, butter beans, whole yogurt, mango, peaches, cantaloupe, watermelon, avocado, sweet potato, red potato, carrots...and I think that covers it.

I've read that a target rash around the anus signifies a sensitivity...and sometimes a body rash...diarrhea, constipation. But what are tell tale signs and I dare not introduce gluten!

Password Issues

13 August 2012 - 06:21 AM

Hi,

I am already a member and don't prefer to start a new profile since I've been a member under another name for years now. I am Swimmr. I haven't visited in a while and needed to log in and the password I thought was under my account, isn't, so I clicked on the "forgot my password" and got the email to click on the link to finish the process, then was prompted to check my email again for my "new password" and this was hours ago. How long does it take? It didn't say it would take any given amount of time. I tried to contact a moderator but can't find a way to do that as an outsider.

I logged in using my facebook and plan to deactivate as soon as my other profile is recovered.

Thanks in advance!

Newborn - Mother With Celiac

16 November 2011 - 04:05 AM

Hi all...it's been QUITE a long time since I've posted. But I have been lurking here and there. My elimination diet was successful by the way.

So in that amount of time that I've been MIA, I managed to get myself pregnant and hubby got deployed. He's due back really soon. However I went into labor 4 days before my EDD. My biggest fear was that she would have Celiac like me. DH has never been tested and doesn't want to. I can't talk him in to it - even for the sake of our baby. He says that it wouldn't matter since I'm Celiac and we all eat gluten free anyways. Well...right now my baby is 9 days old. Her poops look like they are supposed to so I'm sorta looking for other ways I can know if something I am eating is bothering her gut. I know that most Celiacs will have at least ONE other intolerance to something. For me it's soy. So I stay soy and gluten free.

I am too nervous/scared to try an elimination diet while breast feeding. I feel it would cause me a little too much stress. I did one over a year ago for myself with success, like I mentioned but I just don't feel it's "safe" to do for my daughter.

Whats happening is during feeding or right after she'll go from 0 to screaming bloody murder like I pinched the crap out of her. She seems angry/mad. I'll do everything - swaddling, rocking, talking to her, reading to her, shooshing her, bouncing, etc. I can't figure out what it is aside that it may just be something as simple as her fighting going back to sleep and since she is so new, there are so many things that both of us are still unsure about. Ya know?

Anyways, what can I do now or what signs are there that would ease my mind that she is getting ahold of something through my milk?

Thanks all.
