Babies with Coeliac

Coeliac disease may appear when weaning with glutened contained foodsHow do I know if my baby has coeliac disease?

Babies will show their first symptons of coeliac soon after weaning and the introduction to solids that contain gluten. Your baby may show symptoms such as:

  • tummy ache
  • lethargy
  • failure to gain weight
  • bloated tummy
  • loose smelly stools

The damage in the intestines inhibit the absorbtion of nutrients, their faeces may be pale, runny and very smelly. Their abdomen may be swollen and your baby may vomit. 

It is thought there is a one in ten chance of someone having coeliac disease if a family member has been diagnosed. It is worth the whole family being tested.
