Major Flatulence

Recommended Posts

Hi

I noticed a couple of threads about really bad stinky wind, my daughter has been gluten free for nearly a year, but the flatulence has not improved. She has wind so bad and its so smelly, I really want to help her, been at school and with other children, I don't want her to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed as she grows up.

Her diet is pretty bland, she has organic cornflakes with A2 milk and a sliced banana, she tried rice or soy but she will not have it (I only use rice) I found A2 and I think it improved slightly, she doesn't really eat or drink the milk and I try not to let her have other dairy products, too much I notice does make it worse. She has gluten-free toast with honey. Lunch is sometimes left overs such as spag bol, or corn thins / crackers. Dinner is either Chicken and veggies or rice, spag bol, rice noodles.

I have not noticed any other particular foods make it better or worse. She wont take tablets and its hard to get many supplements into her but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Lisa

Lisa, have you tried her on almond milk? Or Lactaid (lactose free) milk? What about yogurt? If she is just lactose intolerant these should be okay for her. On the other hand, if it is all dairy (casein), then I don't think even A2 would work. The almond milk (which is delicious) should work for her if you can get her to try it. Maybe first make it into a banana shake for her to get her used to it. Does she eat any other fruits - berries for example? These would work in a shake too.

Corn is also one of the top eight allergens so you might try switching her to a rice-based cereal - rice puffs or some such - because she could be reacting to the corn. I can't handle corn.

Just a couple of thoughts.

Ooo, I feel her pain. Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, I recommend Blue Diamond. It is AWESOME on cereal. Also, roughage can cause some major flatulence, and for some, corn. I JUST added back dairy, and I feel pretty good on it, but it took some time. You might want to start playing with her diet, too. The body can get used to certain foods and then even they can be a problem. Add in some fruit, quinoa, fish, red meat, see how she does with beans -- though, those are a BIG no-no for me. Potatoes made different ways, soop-up a sweet potato, etc. Just some ideas. I have major issues with gas, too, and these are things I've found that work for my system.

Also just as an aside, any sugar free treats using sugar Alcohol can case gas and bloating. Many things using a table sugar "substitute" - in a young child can cause issues.

Read the labels and stay away from that stuff, at least for a while.
