Hi ladies, first time on this board.
Sorry to bother you but I am at loss and wanted to ask you for insight on Celiac Disease.

My son, Max, is 7 1/2 months old, breastfed and started solids about 2 months ago (at 5 1/2 mo).
2 weeks ago, I fed him "mixed cereal" (rice, barley, wheat and oats). He has had all of those before (well, wheat from a baguette) and never had a reaction. Were following the "3-day rule" with new foods. Well, about 2 hrs after the cereal he started projectile vomiting, about 15-17 times in a 3 hour period. This was followed by a very pale (almost whitish) bowel movement with an awful smell (not normal poo) and later on diarrhea.
The dr thought it was a gastro.

Last week, exactly 7 days after, SAME thing. This time I had fed him oats, which he hadnt had in a while because he didnt like them.

Were going for an u/s tomorrow to discard bowel obstruction but Im thinking it has something to do with the cereal. He wakes up great and then that.

Yesterday I gave him barley and he was very fussy. So much so that lunch time came and he screamed bloody murder when I tried sitting him on his high chair.

So what do you think?. Am I being paranoid?
We dont have any celiac disease in neither one of our families but I read it can still happen and also that the gluten intolerance can be manifested months later.

He gains weight normally (actually, too much hes 22 lbs).

Sorry this is too long, Im probably rambling now but I need some insight please!!!

Thanks so much in advance
My beautiful boys!
Max (3.5 yrs old), Sebastian (11 months old) & Tomas (10 yrs old = 70 human years )

It sounds like possible GER, GERD... my son Collin went thru the same as well and he was gaining weight normally but he was colicky 24-7, puking 24-7 and finally after the gastroenterologist did a barium swallow/ u/s found he had severe GERD. Zantac didn't work alone had to have prilosec as well.

I hope this is the case for your little man too and not signs of something more serious.

Please keep us posted

He hd severe reflux as a newborn. We even spent a night at the hospital when he was a week old because he choked and stopped breathing once. Zantac did work for us and we stopped it at 5 months.
He's been really fine ever since, barely even spit up. This was something else. Try picturing "The Exorcist" scene... that bad.
We have the u/s today and Ill ask the GE. Ill keep you posted.
Thanks so much
