Breastfeeding question

Recommended Posts

Does baby's salvia pass to mom while breastfeeding? I know babies salvia stimulates what kind of breastmilk to make. My one year old ate a bunch of pasta and I then nursed him right after, I do not tolerate gluten, I'm most likely celiac and trying to find the source of not feeling well last night.

A celiac has to ingest gluten in order to get sick.  You might have a wheat allergy, but that is different.    As a celiac, I would not feed my baby gluten.  There are too many other great  healthy foods for baby.  Not giving baby gluten will help protect you from gooey fingers and sloppy kisses, and drool that can be smeared on you  or your home and accidentally ingested.  

I give my 14 year old access to gluten, but outside of my home.  She gets a daily dose for three months prior to her getting a celiac blood test (every 2 to 3 years).  She is careful to wash her hands when she returns home.   

Think about a gluten-free home or clean up baby prior to snuggling or nursing if you suspect gluten is your problem.  Keep gluten in a controlled area.  Kids only eat food or drink  in my kitchen while in a high chair or at their mini picnic table, or kitchen table with the family.  My mom and grandma did the same -- not to avoid gluten, but a mess!

Then you have your answer.  You were most likely to have been glutend by gooey gluteny (is that a word?) baby hands!  Hope you feel better soon.
