    Default gluten intolerance?

    Does anyone here have a baby with gluten intolerance? How did you find out about it? What have you done?

    I ask because my lo seems to be having a problem with baby cereals (I've mentioned this in other threads before). Whenever he has even a little bit of cereal, he has a massive blowout. I haven't tested whether this happens more with rice vs. barley vs. oats. Then yesterday, I gave him one of those biter biscuits for the first time, and today he had another blowout (I ddin't give him any cereal yesterday-- just the biscuit). When he eats strctly fruits and veggies, he doesn't seem to have a problem.

    Should I call his ped.?

    There shouldn't be any gluten in rice, if I remember correctly. I would give rice only for a few days, and see if problem continues, if not give another cereal and see if it occurs.
    good luck!

    my did has gluten allergy. we found out when she was under a month old due to problems with my diet. becareful with rice ceral b/c although rice is gluten free many baby cereals add soy and gluten to rice cereal so it could be do to a food intolernce or just happens at the same time your lo eats cereal.
