Hi all, am having some issues with weaning and hoping someone can offer some advice.
My nearly 7month old baby enjoys her food - purée plus BLW chunks - but had awful wind and constipation. She wakes frequently in the night in pain, and has been pooing just once a fortnight! We’ve resorted to lactulose yesterday which helped but wondering what else I can do. Would probiotics help? If so, any recommendations? She’s just having fruit and veg at the moment. We’ve tried massage, prunes, pear etc but nothing seems to work. Help!
Had a lot of issues with constipation (not so much wind)when I started to wean DD. She would go every 3-4 days and would be screaming when she was trying to poop. We tried everything, cutting out certain foods, prunes etc. Lactulose didn’t really help either. The only thing that helped is water. Offer it to them at every opportunity and if they don’t like it put the tiniest amount of orange juice to sweeten
Luckily the lactulose seemed to help, but don’t want to rely on it or take it every day. Definitely need to be offering more water I think, also for myself, I keep forgetting to drink enough. Maybe that would also help DDs hydration levels.
SandSnakeofDorne we’ve been to the GP twice now, who just advised plenty of water and keep a food diary.
We’ve also had a few days off and that definitely seemed to help. The last few nights have been better (but still no poo), however baby grabbed some bulgar wheat and lamb when out for much earlier ..... am sure we’ll hear the effects later tonight
