Baby having frequent motions, sometimes face swollen, rashes and loose motions if given wheatabix. Diet problems?

lHi i have an 11 month old baby girl who passes anything from 8 to 12 dirty nappies a day! From Sunday she has got very destressed when passing them as in kneees up and screaming! I don;t beleive she could be constipated because she has so many. Also there are mornings when i lift her out of the cot and her face would be quite swollen. I have noticed that she can t take wheatabix as she breaks out in a rash (rash round her eyes, mouth and torso)and would have severe looses nappies for about 24 hrs afterwards. Could theses symptoms be doing with her diet?? I give her what we eat...

the baby is having celiac disease. which is described as hypersensitivity to certain food products, like wheat, barley, rye etc. so there is appearance of such clinical features as in your baby. so, you should avoid these food products and your baby will be okay.
