I am trying to incorporate a few different meals into d's diet to help her go for a no.2 !!!!!! I've got dried prunes and raisin's and I am making some purees.....if any1 has any good ideas/recipes please post. She is 6 monthes
2 dessert apples(peeled and chopped), tablespoon of washed raisins, two prunes, cooked in a little water until all pulpy. Whizzed (and sieved for small babies) add a little cinnamon if wished (makes the house smell lovely).
Apricots are great at the minute and make a lovely summery puree with lots of vitamins and other "health benefits". Nice combined with other fruit.
I used to make a prunie toastie thing for my little one where I cooked and pureed a couple of prunes, whizzed up to make something that looked a bit like jam and spread on toast fingers - cant remember what age but she loved them and they worked...
At this time of year many babies and children become a little constipated because they dont drink enough so worth checking that the fluids are up.
My little ones each have the same breakfast every day - 1 weetabix, half a banana, 5 prunes, enough milk to make it smooth and blitzed to high heaven. I know this is what keeps them regular because they have only had constipation three times and it was when we were on holidays and I gave them packet cereal for brekkie instead.
