Does anyone have experience with Celiac Disease?

Has anyone had experience with Celiac or a gluten intolerance in your baby? My dad and several cousins and aunts have Celiac, so it runs in the family. My son is now 10 months old and has been having diarrhia/large gross diapers very frequently for the past two months or so. I thought maybe he had a milk allergy/sensitivity, but the timing wasn't quite right. We tried cutting out dairy, and it seemed to help for a couple days, but now he has diarrhia again. The only other thing I can think of is the wheat. He has also been fussier than most babies (for most of his life, but especially the past few months). He was a big baby at birth (9lb 6 oz), and has dropped in the percentile rank at every doctor visist. He was down to the 40th percentile at his 9 month check up. The doctor didn't seem concerned, but I'm starting to worry that something is actually wrong...

as long as he's gaining don't worry about what percentile he's in. Many kids slim down when they start moving-the more they move, the more they slim. Rolling over, crawling walking etc. Some kids simply have runny poop. If you are worried about the wheat see about cutting it out of his diet. It won't hurt him and will put your mind at ease. However, it may make no difference. My son has only had a really solid poo once or twice in his life and he'll be 3 in february. Antoher thing to keep in mind is how much citrus he's been eating. Oranges and grapes in my house make me dread the next days diapers. *shudder* they're favorites of both my son and my daughter.
