Are there any GF formulas out there? I have celiac and my 9 month old has been FTT since birth so we are thinking he may also have celiac. No matter what formula we have tried, he still wont gain weight or length. Thank you ladies :)

Failure to thrive is often associated with food allergies and yes Celiac.  I am assuming that by age 9 months your son is on some solids.  Did they add cereal to his formula to help him gain weight?  

I haven't needed to do a search for GF baby cereal.  But with the new labeling requirements the information you need should be on the box.  But now I am curious and am going to do a search.

With FTT you may find your son also will have texture aversion when changed to more solid foods.  So be prepared for that and be thrilled if it isn't a problem.

I might add that I am a Speech Pathologist and have worked with many infants and toddlers with FTT for feeding/swallowing problems.
