melon is a hard food to digest, even for adults, esp if eaten alongside other things, same goes for apple puree, its one of the items on the BART list for constipation in babies
bananas apple sauce rice and something with T cant remember but if u do a search it ll come up.
why not give peaches, mangos, nectarines etc instead,
Hmm, I thought the BART diet was for messed up stomachs - easy things to digest, not hard. Bananas, rice, apples, toast, is what it is, by the way. (I've done a bit of a websearch, but not found much. Some people say it's a diet for after throwing up, which is what I use it for.)
Apples do fight constipation, but bananas don't (in my experience ... I know some people find they do).
At any rate, I'd say a 7-month-old should be able to digest all these? I know mine does fine with them.
Peaches, mangoes and nectarines are all really good finger foods, too.
Thanks. I agree with you notquitecockney, I used the BART diet after dd had gastro flu! she also finds bananas don't cause constipation.
I've tried the other foods and ds loves anything,But i hate trying to remove skins from peaches etc..! just fancied a change too.
NQC, i didnt check out the rest of the site - sounds a bit freaky
but the thing about melons is true
i sometimes try to eat a la Dr Hay, did u ever hear of him, its the hay diet, dont mix carbohydrate and proteins and then theres neutral foods, butters allowed, practically everything, its food combining really to aid digestion and burning excess calories. and it was there i learnt about melons.
