I started my son on "solids" when he was 5 months. I was waiting till around 6 but I noticed him staring at my food and trying to grab it off my plate so I figured I would let him play with some mashed sweet potatoes. Everything was going great until I noticed him getting frustrated at which point I began making him soups or feeding him organic earth's best baby food. He seemed to especially love the pear and prune flavor and the soup (organic potato, organic yam, a chicken leg pureed with the water they were boiled in). BUUUUT twice already he has become ridiculously constipated to the point where i needed to use a glycerin suppository and extreme bicycle legs :-( Is he just not ready? am i giving him the wrong foods? He still nursed very frequently...and we also supplemented with some baby distilled water after the first bout to try and make it easier. He wants food so badly-what do i do?! I was getting excited to have him eating solids too because he refuses the bottle when im not around and i thought it would be a good way to hold him over till i get back home... :-( any tips or advice on the solids front? any tips on getting him to take a bottle?!
