so i have celiac disease. my LO is 16 months old and has been g-free his entire life. we haven't had any testing done on him (yet), but after some research and soul searching, we decided it was best to not intentionally expose him until he's able to verbally tell us of any symptoms or reactions he may have; our plan was to do a gluten trial around age 3.
on thursday morning, his teachers accidentally gave him a saltine cracker for snack at school. i watched him like crazy and didn't notice a change in behavior or appetite, saw no rashes appear, and no fever. he did take an extra long nap thursday afternoon and STTN thursday night, which is unusual for him. last night, 36 hours after exposure, he woke up violently vomiting. he had 2 episodes of vomiting last night, slept fitfully, and has been fine since he woke up. he's been asking to eat, so we've been feeding him g-free foods on the b.r.a.t. diet just in case it's a virus, but he literally has no other symptoms. does anyone have experience with a slightly delayed reaction to gluten like this? my symptoms usually onset within an hour of exposure which is why i'm hesitant to say it's definitely the gluten, but i'm also taking it as a sign that we made the right choice is keeping him g-free for now. just looking for what others have experienced with either themselves or their kiddos, since i know reactions to gluten can present in so many different ways.
in everything give thanks, for this is the will of God, in Christ Jesus, for you
