We started solids with my baby at 6 months, and now she's 7.5 months. We started slowly--once a day the first month, now twice a day. Very small portions, usually 1-2 oz per meal. I give her fruit and veggie purees, and brown rice cereal (Happy Bellies). For the first month and a half she's been very regular, with one big poop in the morning and 2-4 smaller poops throughout the day (she's always been a pooper). This week, however, she's been plugging up. She went two days without pooping, then when she pooped (after a whole day of only BM, no solids) the first poop was the consistency of peanut butter. Then another big poop with the normal consistency for her. I thought she had unplugged, but... then the next day no poop. Today no poop. So two days again with no poop. Lots of gas though.
Any suggestions on how to change her diet to improve this? I will start giving her prunes but was wondering about other things.
Also, she has a lot of food sensitivities (I'm off dairy, soy, nuts, and gluten) so a lot of things are off-limits now.
