Does anyone have any links to how allergens pass into baby while you're pregnant?  Like, if it's probably baby will end up with a gluten sensitivity, is it an issue if mom consumes gluten while pregnant?  And how long prior to delivery is it necessary to cut gluten in order to benefit baby/not transfer gluten through breastmilk?  Does it matter, or can it be done just prior to the milk coming in?  Is gluten transferred into milk if mom had it and it's not out of *her* blood system yet, say a few weeks prior?  Or is it only if you're actively consuming it?

 

Are there any good info links to read up?  Baby isn't here yet, but it's highly probable he will have a gluten issue given previous kiddos.

 

ETA:  I'm not Celiac nor gluten sensitive, but my husband is.  We've had a positive diagnosis with oldest, confirmation once removing it with #2 and 3, though no testing at all.  My husband's conditions improve when not on it as well.  But I don't have any issues with gluten.

Ooooh, this is a good question.  I'm interested in hearing what people know as well.

This is for Celiac specific. I was told by a top Celiac researcher not to li it my diet while pregnate or nursing unless I saw signs ere was an issue when the baby got here. There isn't strong data of if and how much would pass via breast milk. In some women it does and some it doesn't. If you want to limit your diet, you an but there isn't any research on it being effective.

THANK YOU!!  You have made me feel so much better!!  I have been beating myself up the last couple days wondering if I'm going to hurt him by having had it as late as this week and due just about any day now.  But I've had a lot of nausea and a few key staples which include gluten have helped me with weight and nausea. 

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  flowersforyou.gif
