4 month old baby and gluten: from kathryn on 2007-02-20

I have just started to wean my 4 month old dd. She has had poor skin from birth and now has eczema on her cheeks and forehead. I gave her some infant porridge the other day and a few hours later she developed a rash around her mouth and chin where the porridge had been in contact. I noticed that the packet said it contained gluten and cows milk. Is this an allergy or intolerance? How should I investigate this further?

I am so glad i found this sight.. I have just had my 4th baby and found that everytime i ate something homemade like slice or cupcakes he would be up all night screaming.. I baked a few things myself to experiment to see what it could be in the recipe and could only come up with self raising flour.. I did suspect it could be gluten so i tried the same recipe with a gluten free flour and he still screamed all night.. I spoke to older mothers around me and none of them could understand it.. But i know something was upsetting him.. So after reading some of these stories i know i am not going crazy and i feel as though it does make sense now.. I reckon its the wheat .. Thanx to the original person that posted the question and to all of you that answered it.. It certainly has helped me and I am sure many others
