Two weeks ago I started following the Annabel karmel planner to introduce solids to my exclusively Breast feed baby. So he has had a bit of rice, veg and fruit one meal a day a couple of tea spoons. He also had a few sips of water with each meal.
To begin with he went six days without a poo and then when it came it was something else! At least half a pint of mouse like poo, creeping out like lava flow. That was last Thursday and he has not been since then (five days).
Also this week he seems to have extremely excessive wind, trumping at least 40, 50 times a day. The past three nights he has been waking every half an hour, clearly in a lot of discomfort, trumping and crying then he will not go back down in the cot and will only sleep whilst being cuddled.
Has anyone any experience of this?
Does he need to go through this going from exclusively BF to solids aka a period of adjustment, or have I introduced solids too early? (he is five and a half months). If so what shall I do? Stop the food and increase the breast feeds? Or carry on and hope it passes?
I should also had that he has started with eczema at around the same time which i know wiffs of food intolerances but he has not had any of the 'controversial food' or any formula.
He is normally such a happy baby .it is breaking my heart to see him so fretful all day and so upset at night .have I broken him?
Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated especially if it comes before I start crying!!
