Healthy Times makes a great teething bisquit in maple and vanilla flavors, they use oat and barley flour instead of wheat. You can find them in the health food stores.

I have also used carrots as a teether- I will only use it while there is no evidence of the thooth actually sticking up- just when the gums are swollen and sore- my 8 month old loves it- I think she likes the coldness and the fact that she can hold on to it.

I also have one of those mesh feeders that you can buy at babies r us- it is great- the mesh even rubs her gums while she is sucking on the frozen banana that I put in it. The only downside is that if you don't have a dishwasher (like me)- it is a bit of a pain to clean.

I have considered giving my baby the teething cookies, but I'm not sure how I feel about giving her cookies and teaching her to eat them throughout the day. Later will she always want cookies and not other healthful things??

Re Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from Dainne on 2006-06-08

hi, Could sore eyes be a symptom of gluten intolerance. Ive had an eye exam, and it was fine. For the past few months ive experienced headaches, motion sickness feelings, sinus problems. I truly suspect diet is the culprit, but don't know where to begin. Do I remove dairy, gluten, caffine????? Can you suggest a plan? Thanks Dianne

One first step could be to keep a detailed diary of everything that you eat - and any symptoms that you are aware of every day.
You may find that there is a pattern that relates some of your symptoms to the foods that you eat.

This is easier if you cook your own food and keep your diet fairly simple as many manufactured foods are mixtures of a lot of different things

Thank You,

I found out that I have this celiac disease and I hate it I can not eat any of the food I was use to and I cry alot because I'm a picky eater please send some advise if any I've have been eating some of the food I'm not suppose to and I'm in pain not getting better, I'm in an area where no one around me has it if they to they are old and out of town...

Your college looks a lovely place to be. I found its website.
In a college that size there should be about 20 students in each year on a gluten-free diet ( either that or they are ill because no-one has told them they need this diet)

Note that it is not a disease. Don't call it that. It is simply that to you, gluten is a mild poison and really best avoided.

Why not start a club for people who have the coeliac condition and need a gluten-free diet. Meet each week to discuss what you can eat and help each other keep to the diet. Put up posters etc. Get the college to help you.

vegetarian and gluten free: from sarah on 2006-06-15

I have just been diagnosed with having Coeliacs. The idea of cutting out so much food that i love was bad enough, but thing is that Im also vegearian, as i have been since i was 10 (am 18 now). This isnt going to leave me with much choice. Any suggestions?

You must make sure that you get plenty of variety in your diet, and you don't eat the same things all the time.
I hope that you have learn't how to cook - because you will have to learn in order to get plenty of variety.
I hope also that you eat fish, eggs and dairy produce, otherwise you will have to think very carefully about keeping to the vegetarian aspect of your diet.
You can make a wide variety of meals from fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, rice, potato, sweetcorn / maize, sweet potato. Go out into the food supermarket and look at the range of fresh produce on the shelves.
