Favorite gluten-free Baby Products

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm getting ready to have my first baby and would like to use gluten-free baby products. What are some good brands that are out there? I've read some Burt's Bee's stuff is gluten-free, what about California Baby? I'm trying to think of products that are easily available at Whole Foods or Target. Thanks for any suggestions!

California Baby's products state gluten free right on the label if they're gluten free. That's all I use in the way of personal care products on my baby. I also know that some of the A.R.B.ONNE baby stuff is gluten free, but I'm not sure which products.

Be careful with baby cereals - I would not use Gerber Rice cereal or Gerber Organic Rice Cereal, for instance. Too much CC risk. My youngest son used to reject and/or vomit these cereals prior to us finding out that he had gluten issues. We thought he might have a rice allergy - but after several months gluten free he was able to reintroduce gluten-free rice products without a problem. Someone posted here recently about a type of infant rice cereal that is not CC, but I think it's a brand sold at health food stores.

I think most infant fruits/veggies and of course fresh would be fine. Some types of baby yogurt might be okay.

For older babies, I rather like the Kinnikinnick animal crackers. Another finger food - Crispy Brown Rice by Erewhon - again not something you can find at Target.

Be aware that food proteins do pass through breastmilk - my oldest was sensitized to peanut this way (he has peanut allergy) and my youngest was sensitized to gluten this way. Both had rashes, etc., when they were exclusively breastfed.

Best wishes! Babies are so cool.

Thanks for the product tips. I'm really struggling with when to introduce gluten. Both my husband and I are celiac/gluten intolerant and we know the babies genetic make up will make him highly likely to develop celiac at some point. I wish there was a manual for this stuff but there just hasn't been enough research yet.

Congratulations!! Babies ARE too cool!

Just wanted to issue a beware... Burt's Bees either has been or is going to be purchased by Proctor and Gamble. So, keep your eyes open for any label changes. One of our health food stores has stopped carrying them, which is not cool since they are a local co for us here in the Raleigh/Durham area. I think that is due more to an issue with them not liking P&G rather than any immediate changes in Burt's Bees. I haven't stopped using them, as I have yet to see any changes, but I do keep a watch.

I just read that a few weeks ago about Burt's Bee's. A bummer I agree! I just switched all of my lip balm to Badger Balm and I think they have a whole line of products including a few baby things like diaper rash ointment.

The only A.R.B.ONNE stuff that is gluten free is their diaper rash cream and their baby oil, everything else contains a gluten ingredient. California Baby is greeat!! I also use "Earth Mama, Angel Baby" because is smells amazing and is so wonderful to use. The soap is a nice foam with a pump dispenser! Love it on my new little babe!

Another AWESOME older baby treat - Baby Mum Mum. It's a lightly sweetened gluten-free rice crackery thing that melts in the mouth & perfect for teething/first foods. My son used to love em. I think you can also mix them with breast milk or formula to make a sort of rice cereal mush.

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
