Extended Breastfeeding & Celiac Diagnosis

Recommended Posts

I asked Dr Fassano about this. He said unless there are actually signs of an issue that the benefits of breast feeding outweigh what gluten gets through.

Definitely. I think that's true for just about everything--there are very few situations (such as chemotherapy, radioactive iodine, and lithium) that are incompatible with breastfeeding. With gluten, the mom can go gluten-free if it's in the family to try to forestall the celiac diagnosis. I'm not sure anyone has looked at whether extended breastfeeding continues to do that for a longer period of time.
