A Mom Blog Social Network
My son has been off of gluten and dairy since the end of October. He was having 3+ diarrheas per day until we took him off, and then it all disappeared almost overnight. Looking forward to having some people to share experiences with! My blog is www.coulditbeceliac.blogspot.com
Thanks! I'll be following you too!
Wow, I'm so glad to see this post! Obviously I'm not glad that your son is LI and so on... my son is about to have tests next month as we are still unsure what his problem is but so far I have met no other mums of kids with intolerances! My son is 12 months old and was diagnosed with reflux at three weeks. We weaned early, on doctor's advice, and he has had a few reactions to cheese, yogurt, tomatoes, eggs and parsnips. Oh, and we gave him some birthday cake (a tiny piece!) and he was very ill. He has lactose free formula but still constant runny nappies so I guess the tests will determine if its lactose or dairy. I also wonder about the gluten to be honest.How old is your son?
I'm looking forward to finding out exactly what my son can and can't eat as at the moment we are terrified of giving him the wrong foods and we hate to see him in pain. We won't get the results until March! My son hardly eats- mostly all he wants is bananas, toast and weetabix. Some days he cries as soon as he sees his bowl :( The doctor says he associates food with pain which is really heartbreaking. I would love to hear more about how your son is doing now that he is on the lactose and gluten free diet. Is there light at the end of the tunnel?? What do you feed him??

Look forward to hearing from you
My son is two. It's a long story (his eating history) but to summarize, we put him on whole milk in July, two weeks before moving to Germany. He was doing great, at first, but a month into living in Germany I started to notice that he wasn't eating as much (which wasn't much to begin with), was really gassy, his tummy was often swollen, he burped a lot, and his bowl movements were ... beyond disgusting. The team my husband was playing for folded after just two months so we headed home. I took him to the pediatrician and they were worried he might have Giardia. Thankfully it turned out to be what they think was a lactose intolerance. Whew, that's easier to deal with. I switched him to soy milk and almost immediately, the problems were solved. His appetite also increased. Double whew! Turns out that much whole milk on a never-full tummy was just too much for his little body.

We aren't gluten free but my girlfriend writes a great blog about gluten free living with lots of yummy recipes. She hasn't been keeping it up lately but there are a lot of fabulous older posts!

Thank you, Nicola! My honesty recently got me into a bit of trouble but ... I stand behind my blog and the way I feel. If I write for anyone but myself, I lose the integrity I started with.
I've also started to struggle with what to write about - ideas flow through my head but they aren't always related to hockey and the blog is obviously a hockey-ish blog!
