Can We Talk About Poop For A Minute?

Recommended Posts

My 3 year old has been gluten free for about 48 hours. He was a once every 3-4 day pooper. He would strain and turn red. He would hold it. He would get a little out and stop. Since he has been gluten free, he has been in the bathroom 3 times today. It's not d, and it's not c. It's a normal movment. Is this common when starting the gluten-free diet in children? I have not seen it in myself.

TIA!

My 3yo had regular, always loose stools, going 3-4 times a day along with stomach pains. And when she got sick or would ingest a lot of gluten, it would be liquid. Almost immediately, her bowels improved. As soon as we got the celiac disease b/w back with positive results, we cut back on gluten. And then once we got the positive biopsy, she went 100% gluten free. Now, if there's cross-contamination or gluten ingested, we can tell b/c her bowels change immediately. I know it's the opposite side of things, but hope this helps!
