Hi - I started weaning my daughter at 18.5 weeks and she is now 6 months. I have been slowly introducing new foods and last week introduced broccoli and peas - I had to take her to A and E today as (I think) she was very constipated and kept crying and grunting most of the day. Her stools (sorry) are quite putty like and suppositories and paracetemol (on docs advice) seem to help her.
Any advice would be great as now I don't want to give her anything in case I block her up some more..! also the doctor said it my be from teethin too..but I thought they got runny tummy's from that??
Will take her to GP anyway when they open but just wanted some advice from you ladies first!
Hi lulumama - she is drinking 5 bottles a day and i do offer her water between feeds not that she takes much. I have been giving her bananas too. Possibly I should make the veg/fruit more watery thats a good tip thanks.
No I just give her regular formula (Aptamil) which she has been happy on since she was 2 months.
I felt she was ready to start weaning she is a big baby on 91st percentile.
