When Chey gets "glutened" I give her 1/3 of a Pepto Bismol chewable... then a little later another 1/3 then if she's still cramping and has D, the 3rd piece... I don't usually have to give her more than 1 tablet a day, but if it's really bad I've had to give her the 1/3 dose more often... also, I just have her munch on EnerG crackers until she feels like eating anything, then if she feels like eating, she gets rice, bananas and applesauce with the EnerG crackers.

that's about it..

Nini.. Does the pepto bismol chewable help with D? He is not acting like he is in pain at all, so dont think he is crampinng... though he would never let you know! Heck just yesterday he was DEMANDING peperoni LOL.

yes it helps with the D... in fact, when I was a child, my mom had liquid Pepto on hand all the time for me. She kept it in the fridge cos cold is the only way I'd take it. But since I was undiagnosed Celiac all my life, no wonder my mom bought lots of Pepto. Chey likes the chewables better than the liquid, the liquid makes her gag.

I just wanted to add that the last time Cole stayed sick that long from a glutening, I finally figured out that the Log Cabin Pancake syrup I had been giving him had been reformulated and had gluten in it. Cole is usually only sick with D a couple days. They may just be completely different, but just thought I'd mention it in case you guys are in the same fix.

Thankfully all my kids now use the toilet!! :D Wow, I sure don't miss that! Good luck with it. With the mentioning of ginger, which is good for an upset tummy, I wonder if gluten free ginger snaps would help??
