  1. Thank you so much for the feedback! Yes, she had been having problems for a while. Her stool is NEVER firm, always loose and she goes about 3 times a day. She's very smart and advanced, yet she poops herself and has no idea she even went. It's just slides out, she doesn't push it out or anything. Also, her husband hurts about 5x+ a week. She's very active(dancer, gymnast,teeball) but sometimes her stomach pain prevents her from wanting to play. This is what I purchased: peaunt butter, bread, pizza, popsicles,chicken and cheese wraps, macaroni and cheese, organic eggs and milk(are they both gluten free always?), waffles, chips, pretzels, organic fruits and vegetables, cereal and chicken. Is that ok to start with? She's a little picky and it was my first trip for those things, so I wasn't quite sure what to start with, but I'm open to all suggestions.
  2. Hi everyone! My 4 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I'm just looking for some support, tips. This whole gluten thing is completely new to me and although I've been doing research, I'm still confused. I'm sad to say I don't know the ingredients in everything we eat. I visited a natural foods store and purchased a large amount of gluten free products, but does this change has to be gradual or immediate? Is gluten completely banned or should it just be moderated? I'm making the change with her so we will eat the same food. I just don't know where to begin....
