Gluton In Breast Milk?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if gluten is expressed in breast milk? I think my toddler has celiac and I have a new baby due any day. I intend to keep her off gluten for the first year, but I'm not sure if I should avoid it while I am nursing her or if it is okay for me to eat it.

Yes, gluten is definitely in your breast milk if you eat it. The only way to have a gluten-free baby would be for you to avoid gluten as well.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

Anything you eat does go through your breastmilk. I have a son allergic to wheat and milk so the allergist and I worked on a diet plan for the third trimester and first 6 months of breastfeeding. I am not eating gluten, dairy, eggs, fish, seafood, nuts, and tree nuts. This can be difficult but for me it is the right thing to do.
