  1. We have a GI appt tomorrow morning and then an appt with a children's nutritionist hopefully next week. Truthfully, I have gotten conflicting information on this. Based on my experience with my ds, I tend to think that you can actually pass gluten through breastmilk - however I don't have ANY medical information to back that up. Watch this thread because I am going to pin down an answer (woman on a mission) and when I do, I will post and let you know. Maclaine
  2. Just wanted to clarify, when you said that I should be following a gluten-free diet, did you mean that I could be passing gluten to my unborn child? or were you meaning that Carter needed to be 100% gluten-free? We are actually a family of 6 soon to be 7. With Carter still being so young, and gluten-free being somewhat more expensive, he is currently the only one Gluten-free. Thanks for your help! Maclaine
  3. Hope I am doing this right - not real familiar with this BB format. My 18 mo son was just diagnosed with celiac disease. He is currently failing to thrive, but we are so grateful to have some answers and a direction to help him. Since his diagnosis, many pieces of the puzzle have seemed to come together and we strongly suspect that my husband also has this condition, although we haven't had a chance to get him tested yet. I am currently 21 weeks pg and it is my understanding that this condition has genetic ties, meaning that our new baby may also have this. I nursed Carter until he was 13 months and I am intending to do the same with our new arrival, but I am wondering if I will need to follow a gluten-free diet while nursing and also how soon we will be able to test the new baby to find out if s/he has it. TIA! Maclaine
