Re: My darling now on solids but constipated - not enough BF
We let our DD start sipping water at the end of each meal once she started solids (around 6 months). I think it helps them wash down anything still in their mouth at the end of the meal. We also did the usual -- BFing before each meal (usually about 1/2 hour to an hour before). If she seemed constipated we'd dilute some apple juice and give it to her, and it usually did the trick, but we only had to do that once in a while. We did some purees and I think that helped keep some less-constipating foods in rotation. She LOVED beets, and those seemed to keep her regular (although with very scary-looking poop). We also made sure to have prunes and peas as a regular part of her diet. We also tried to keep binding foods more spread out -- like bananas one day, then carrots the next, etc. What kinds of things is your DD eating?
