Can the baby become celiac during breastfeeding?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).

No. Normally, celiac babies present symptoms once breastfeeding has ended and they have been weaned, when the first gluten-containing cereals are introduced into the diet (porridges, cookies, soups).

One of the first signs is that the baby stops eating and, therefore, its growth is affected. Diarrhea and vomiting may also occur.
