This week I took my constipated 19wo FF DS round to see the GP, after 6 weeks of trying all the HV and MN tips (switching formula, giving extra water, apple juice, tummy massage, bicycle legs, warm baths) and feeling a little concerned that even with all this he's still a once-a-week-man.
The GP reacted with total disgust - she didn't actually say "time-waster" but she was definitely thinking it. During the 4 minutes she gave us, she told me 8 times "the HV deals with weaning" and then instructed me to start feeding DS pureed prunes.
I thought we were supposed to start with baby rice? And wait til 6 months? He seems too young to me. Is there any reason why FF babies should be weaned earlier than BF babies? Any top tips on dealing with a snotty GP who leaves you feeling totally mystified?
