@Beofett here's one more study on Gliadin: nature.com/pr/journal/v20/n7/abs/pr1986198a.html

Beth, @balancedmama 's answer suggests that although there is Gliadin passed through in breast milk the amout of gluten the mother ate didn't seem to make a difference. However our personal findings were exactly as yours - if my partner stopped eating gluten the cramps stopped and the crying got much better. Re-introducing gluten brought the cramps back and stoppping gluten once again stopped the cramps. We found no difference with dairy.

comment Does gluten pass through into breast milk?
Thank you for the excellent answer. Our baby was suffering from cramps that got worse in the evening. We had been through most possibilities and got as far as that it seemed to be a digestive problem. So first my partner tried removing lactose but no change. Then she tried removing gluten as she has had problems with gluten in the past. This stopped the cramps and reintroducing gluten brought the cramps back. Once again stopping gluten has stopped the cramps. I'll keep researching to see if it isn't, it may be something else. But at least it could be so it's not a total waste of time.
