Hi all, DD2 has been weaning now for about 3-4 weeks, (27 weeks) and she's doing well. Eats most things I offer, but hasn't really taken to drinking water as well as I remember DD1 did. I can't really remember DD1 having constipation, but DD2 seems to be very bunged up in the last few days. Only passing very hard small amounts. I made up half a teaspoon of brown sugar in 4oz of cooled boiled water yesterday and she took about half of it. Is that enough to have an effect? How long should I wait before I give more? Someone said to me that orange juice also works if watered down but I'm note sure of the quantities? Its awful seeing her straining all the time.
Don't know that this is proven to work anyway. Try giving her fruit with a high water content ie. melon. She should n't have reduced her milk feeds yet either, so if she has try offfering it before soilids for a few days
