  1. I voted yes: 1-2 years. Rosario was breastfed until she was 13 months. I only stopped because she was having problems with her weight gain and the peds [and I] thought it was because she wasn't eating enough table food and relying on being nursed even if she didn't eat her meals. I wonder now, even though she hasn't been diagnosed yet if she was getting gluten through my milk and that was causing problems. I guess I'll wait until the tests come back...
  2. Thank you so much to everyone for your responses! I'm so glad I found this forum because I was completely clueless about this condition and the diet seems so overwhelming but you've given me some real encouragement that it might not be so bad after all! I went ahead and called the pediatrician to request the blood work be done this week. I've been completely clueless as to why she wasn't gaining and I was really getting tired of my family saying I wasn't feeding her enough, so now I have @ least an explanation. One more question though: does this disease ever go away? I mean, is it possible that she might grow out of it one day??
  3. Hi, I have a 15 month old daughter who hasn't gained any weight since she was 11 months old. She's currently fallen off of the charts @ 17 lbs. 11oz. She's otherwise healthy I think: and a very clingy, but happy baby. She used to look healthy as well, but now, she has a swollen stomach and her arms and legs look remarkably thin. The skin on her bottom is even starting to become a bit saggy. Other than the absence of weight gain [or failure to thrive as the doctors have so nicely put it ] she was fairly loose stools and they are always about the color of her skin tone, so very light. She also doesn't eat very much sometimes, and eats a good amount @ others. They've put her on Pediasure for the next 6 weeks to see if it helps, but if it doesn't: they plan on doing blood work to check for Celiac and other potential culprits for her small size. The more I read about this condition though, the more I think I'm just going to request the tests now and find out. I'm so worried about her now, and I feel so bad for getting frustrated @ her not eating and being so clingy all of the time. When all this while she was probably in pain. I need some tips on a gluten free diet for a young toddler! How did you all handle having young children with this disease?
