New Here And Need Some Help

Recommended Posts

Thank you both so much for the advice. I have seen a lactation consultant and she does not think it is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance but I did think of that. She tested my breastmilk and at the beginning of a feeding it has more fat than most formulas on the market.

I have stopped eating the chips so will see if that helps. I did notice that Rice Dreams said it contained gluten and I am using Pacific which states that it is gluten free. It is so hard as I do not have the reaction to the food to tell what could be causing it. I stopped buying bulk rice flour because I realized the risk of cc was incredibly high and that could be part of the problem. I am also taking the entire house gluten-free which is not making my husband very happy but I hope it will help.

Thank you both again. : :)

He can join my hubby....no really tell him he will pretty much eat the same ol stuff he normally eats (chicken,steak,pork..etc). I would allow him to have his own shelf in the cabnit with a few gluten foods that he can only have to take to work or when the kids are in bed. My hubby has on his shelf cookies, granola bars and cereal. My hubby basically only eats gluten free at home, but for his work lunch we still have regular bread. It takes time but the kids catch on and don't even ask for dady's bread or snacks. The hardest part is eatting out and my son wanting to sample off Daddy's plate when he has a gluten meal.

Same here with my hubby. He knew we had to do this for the kids, but he wanted to have his goodies too. He is my junk food eater and the kids loved him for it befor gluten-free. He had his stash in the bedroom and at night when the kids were off to bed he ate then. :rolleyes: In front of me who had to go gluten free also. Thats ok don't like sweets at all. give me fruit and i am happy as a little kid. B) I had so much stomic problems as a kid that candy and other sweets hurt me. Know I know why now but to this day I dont eat sweets and my 2 of my kids are the same. Ice cream they only eat two spoons fulls and thats that. but just understand it is hard on the men giving up foods just give them a spot to put it. my dh still has problems giving the kids stuff that could have gluten in it but it is a not on purpous and he has cried over glutenize the kids. I am the one that does all the food prep and shopping and still teaching him how to read lables. but when he takes the kids out for daddy time he loves to get them candy and thats when it happens. so now he makes them wait to come home so mommy can read the lable. So I become the meany. :blink: Well hope this give you a laugh Got to look at the light side of life and laugh or you just cry all the time. :P

Your baby is 5 mo. old, right? Mine were both teething at that time. Could there be any cross-contamination with items your child is teething on? My kids put their mouths on everything, when they were teething: the handle of a grocery cart, the back of their high chair, daddy's shoe, you name it! Gross, huh?

What about Grandma and Dad... could they be accidentally cross-contaminating? Sneaking gluten treats in, because they don't understand what celiac is all about? We had those issues at our house, so everyone in my family got a copy of Dana Korn's Kids With Celiac Disease for Christmas this past year.

Most importantly, when you're the mom in charge of a kid with celiac, it's sometimes very exhausting. Heck, just nursing a healthy non-celiac kid is exhausting, right?! But don't give up. It get's easier. It really does...
