I'm almost certain that my 8 month old daughter has gluten intolerance, possibly Celiac disease. I'm wondering if any of you would like to share your experience and symptoms in your infants.
Layan immediately gets very loose stools and a bad diaper rash (even bleeds sometimes) if she has anything with wheat or barley. She also becomes fussy, and has so many poopy diapers for the rest of the day. I haven't tried any other glutenous grains with her. She does well eating rice cereal and even Earth's Best baby oatmeal. The only other food I know she's allergic to is sesame seeds. I have an appointment for the pediatrician on Sunday, and I will ask if there is a specialist we can be referred to. I'm not sure what's available here because I am in Saudi Arabia, so we'll see. :)
