    Seeking advice on baby food (baby is allergic to milk, egg & wheat)

    My 1-year old son is allergic to milk, egg and wheat. He has been primarily eating rice-based products, and hypoallergenic formula (Nutramigen). He can eat meat, although the intake is usually very little. We're concerned about his proper growth/nutrition (for example, still no sign of teething). Could you suggest some (new/alternative) food products that we can try with him. Thank you.

    Have you checked with a dietician? My 2-year-old niece has finally been diagnosed with celiac, and my sister is vegan -- this took a LOT of discussion with a dietician to get smoothed out. I know she eats mostly oat- and rice-based stuff, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and some enriched yeast stuff my sister has been eating to get some of the vitamins she can't get from animal-free stuff -- yeast is low enough on the food chain, I guess wink. I don't know all of the details, but if you research vegan celiac diets then it might turn something up for you -- milk, egg, and wheat are all out of the equation there.

    I agree with wychic about the celiacs disease. It might be worth looking up. I believe it includes foods that are gluten free, which are more and more prevalent in stores now.

    Have you told your doctor about the lack of teething? That really concerns me being that he is already 1 year old. I have heard about some children not having teeth until 18 months, but I'm just wondering if this has been brought up.
    Good luck!
