Conflicting Info On Orajel Toddler Training Toothpaste

Recommended Posts

My 3.5 yo son was dx'd with celiac disease, (+ endoscopy and bloodwork) and has been gluten free for 2 weeks now. His stools are still yellow although they are now firm, so I have been searching for possible gluten that we weren't noticing... all I can think of his toothpaste (orajel toddler toothpaste). I have found some sites that claim its gluten free and some that say its not. I emailed orajel but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone knew?

tia!

If its only been two weeks on the diet, I wouldn't be too worried. It generally takes longer than 2 weeks for the body to heal and stop attacking itself, and then bring itself back up (i.e., start absorbing nutrients, etc.)

Point is: you may have him completely gluten free, but his body is taking a little while to catch up----completely normal.

I just wanted to add to this reply as my son has recenlty been diagnosed and I had the same question. Since it wasn't clear on this thread whether Toddler Orajel was gluten-free, I emailed the company and this is their response:

Thank you for visiting our web site. We appreciate your interest in our company and in using Orajel
