My 6.5 month old has started some solids - a little bit of rice cereal in the mornings, then whatever I've made in the afternoons (he's tried applesauce, squash, sweet potatoes, and other smooshy stuff, usually only a few teaspoons worth) - I try really hard to make sure that solids don't impact his consumption of milk, and so far it hasn't.
Over the weekend he did get constipated - on Friday he had a fair amount of banana at the DCP (I think they're used to kids getting pushed onto real foods faster and are after me to bring more rice cereal, I've been resisting), and apples in the afternoon, so that plus his cereal I think is the culprit (over the weekend he only had a few bites of cereal on saturday, and some spinach and some squash).
I backed him off solids immediately and just nursed as much as possible last night, and sent him to DC with a much smaller amount of cereal and no "snack", just milk. Is that reasonable? Waiting to hear back from the doctor but if solids are the culprit, seems easing off and getting more fluids in if possible is the best thing. (should I increase what he gets for milk at DC? He gets 12 oz for about 6.5 hrs in their care, then 3-4 oz between him getting home with dad and me getting home several hours later)
Should I go ahead and steam up some prunes when I get home, or is that likely to swing us too far the other way?
