Ugh We Glutened Her

Dh & I are so mad at ourselves. We had picked up what we thought was gluten-free pasta. It was in a case w/other gluten-free pasta, but it was next to regular pasta. Someone must've picked up a reg. & put it on the gluten-free side & we didn't even look at it.

Poor dd was sooooo sick, my heart just ached for her. I wish it was me instead of her. It was a very hard lesson to learn. We got lax & she paid for it. She was throwing up for 5+ hours, she was miserable & so were we.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

We didnt' tell her that she had gluten b/c she'd never trust any food again. She's almost 5 & very leary of any foods. :(

PSA: always, always, always check & recheck labels!

Don't beat yourself up, we have all done it! My parents had the kids over one weekend, and my dad picked up a box of Van's Waffles, thinking they were all gluten free. My dad was nearly in tears when he called to tell me that Emmie was sick. My dd does the same thing, hours of vomiting. It is hard to watch....but she'll recover, and so will you!

Awww....poor baby...and poor parents. So sorry this happened to all of you.

File this away for when she's older and asks if you're "sure" she's Celiac.

I totally feel for you! It is really hard in the beginning, but you'll get the hang of it. We are only about 3-4 weeks gluten free here. The second week DD was gluten free, I bought a box of cocoa crispies. I had read the label, didn't see anything listed that was a no-no (so I THOUGHT)..... It took a couple of days for a reaction from DD for some reason, maybe she ate more of them the day she had the reaction. She had horrible awful diarrhea with a nasty rash that took days to clea up. I couldn't figure out what I had given her to cause that so started rechecking labels, and looking up ingredients on the net. I was too stupid to realize the malt flavoring in them was derived from barley..... I felt like a terrible mother. Now I bought cocoa pebbles, and she won't touch them. I think she knew the crispies made her sick, so she will not go near anything similar. But, I've learned from it :).

The bad thing is that she's been gluten-free for about 15mths. We were so diligent & for whatever reason, we just didn't double check. It's really bad that all 3 adults didn't check :rolleyes:

Just plain dumb. But, it's a mistake that we won't ever make again!
