Hi - we are 2 weeks in to weaning my 6mo DS. The weaning is going well, he's had lots of different mushed up veg, and some of the ready made organix type fruit purees, and some weetabix and banana etc etc. However, the poor little mite is really constipated. Any tips on helping him to get his bowel moving? Thanks
Thanks girls. I've given him some pureed apricots, they always seem to do the trick for me. If he's no better tomorrow I'll have to get him in with the nurse/dr as I'm worried about his bottom being sore. Sorry if this is TMI, but he's getting the poo half way out then it seems he can't get it any further and it's just stuck there. It must be really horrid for him, poor little chap. Thanks again.
I've just fed my DD some pureed dried apricots (sweeter than fresh) so the same reason. Here's hoping! [dons rubber gloves, apron and helmet with face guard] I chopped them up and soaked them in some warm water for an hour or two until they soften and then wizz them up with some of the water they were soaking in.
