  1. Hi Thanks for the replys. My son does have some other symptoms besides the weight. He has tons of gas, and his stools are mostly mushy/frothy but not watery and undigested. He has but has been described to me as the Ethopian look, big belly and super skinny everywhere else. He's quite fussy at meal times and never seems satisfied even after I think he's had a lot to eat. And yes he does have reflux but I think that it is improving. We are seeing out pedi doctor today and I will ask to look at some other reasons why the poor weight gain. The biopsy is still not booked and I'm so desparate to have some answers. This first year is so crucial for development......Would you go gluten-free and say forget about the testing or keep looking for answers?
  2. No, I have not tried to eliminate dairy from my diet. I had not thought about this as being a problem. Can a dairy allergy prevent a baby from gaining weight? His growth was perfect until the introduction of grains...I will have to look into this one more.
  3. My son is 9 months old. He is breastfed and started cereals at 6 months old. He had gained weight at a steady rate until then and now in the last 3 months has gained less than 1 pound. Our pediatrician is positive it's celiac and we have had the blood work done. It has come back negative, which I understand is normal for babies and young children. Now the biopsy is going to be scheduled, which I'm okay with. However in the mean time I'm afraid that there may be something else wrong and we're wasting precious time. Did other parents go through this while you were waiting for a diagnosis? How long did it take before you had a diagnosis? It's been 3 weeks already and I'm just desparate for my baby to start getting bigger. Also did you worry that there was something wrong with your breast milk? My son nurses 5-6 times a day and he will just eat and eat and still does not seem satisfied. I try to feed him alot of food but then he spits up. My husband thinks I'm not feeding him enough, and should give him formula. I'm getting a lot of information from this board and it has been very educational. I would appreciate any and all advice. Thanks.
