Re: oats-when can you start
dd is going through the same thing. our pedi's nurse said that rice cereal can be binding...and to try oatmeal instead. i don't necessarily think the oatmeal will make baby poop, but eliminating the rice cereal will make baby less constipated. and yes, if your ds has taken rice cereal well, then he is ready to try oatmeal.
if you are trying to make ds poop, then you can try the prunes or watered down pear juice (i've been hesitant to try the pear juice). i did place dd in a warm bath last night and she pooped within the hour.
