In Topic: Holding Toddler?

29 December 2010 - 02:54 PM

My son was diagnosed at 18 months. Pre diagnosis and during any accidents we had to hold him all the time. His favorite positions when glutenend are swinging or behind held upside down. He will sometimes allow me to put him down with a pillow under his back so that he is arched so I can use the restroom! ;) Good Luck! People don't realize how exhausting it is to have a celiac kid!!

Help! The link didn't work for me. It only took me to her blog about her goats.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

My pediatic dr. said that the house brands of Tylenol or Motrin are safe.

In Topic: How Long After Diagnosis Did Your Child Start Gaining Weight?

05 May 2010 - 07:05 PM

I know this is an older post, but I was wondering about the Benecalorie. Has anyone had any luck with it for weight gain, or with PediaSure? My son is 9 months post diagnosis and not gaining as the dr, and I would like!

Thanks everyone for your feedback. My son was diagnosed by biopsy. It is frustrating that my son is not growing when we thought he would "catch up" in a few months. I know everyone is different, but I am sad that he is so tiny and may be the tiniest one in his class for a while.

We are going to the nutritionist at children's hospital next week and she will make sure we are doing the "right thing" at home - no cross contamination, etc. I have been careful so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if we were also making some mistakes. We do not have a 100% gluten free home, since my husband and others in our house sometimes eat gluten. I wonder if we have to ban it altogether?

His BM's are much better after we went gluten-free. That's why we thought we were doing okay. He is much better in other ways - eczema improved, better mood, etc. Just not growing!

Good tip about the probiotics - I just talked to a friend and she gives her child Benecalorie, which is a gluten free calorie supplement. I just ordered some and hope that will add some weight.

In Topic: How To Handle Playdough In The Classroom?

You are not being overly cautious! There is no such thing in this game! I am fortunate enough to also be able to afford to buy a classroom supply for my kid. I bought Model Magic. The teacher had never used it and really liked it. I also supplied her with ziplocks because if it gets put back into a container or ziplock it can be reused over and over again.
Discount School Supply is a great resource!
Good luck!
