  1. My 3 year old daughter had quite the distended belly as well. She did not have constipation but loose stools instead. Once she was gluten-free, the distension seemed to go down dramatically after about a week (the bacteria had nothing to feed on inside there). After about a month is when she finally got to what we are figuring is her "normal" size. She's been gluten-free for 3 months now and it's amazing to see what a different child she is. Hopefully you will notice the same results with yours. Michelle
  2. My three year old had an endoscopy almost 2 months ago and they totally put her out. Her father and I were in the room when she went under sedation and were there when she woke up. She didn't remember or feel a thing. Good luck Friday!
  3. My daughter usually had green poop whenever a blue food was eaten - whether yogurt, kool-aid, etc.
  4. My daughter, 3, was just diagnosed with celiac. She had a horribly distended belly. She never has had issues with BM's, as I think she was incredibly uncomfortable and knew when one was coming. Urinating, on the other hand, has become a real issue recently. She's been potty trained for 6 months now and never had any accidents. She's had accidents during the day on and off for the last month where she can't make it all the way to the potty. Sometimes she is right next to it, other times she's no where near it. Is there a possible link to her new diet, or lack of gas in her gut that she has to adjust her timing for realizing when she has to urinate? In addition she has had only one night where she has not wet herself. Any thoughts/suggestions? I also have a 3 month old baby, but I would have thought that if it was a reaction to that, the problem would have started a while back, not coinciding with the diagnosis.
