Dd is 9 months old now. She is just now starting to show some interest in "solid" foods. We do some purees and she also feeds herself. She is very picky, though (not much of a surprise if you knew me!). The foods she loves include bananas, carrots, and sweet potatoes. She will eat a little bit of some other fruits, including apples, pears, apricots, and peaches, but definately not very much. She doesn't like any other veggies, either. Lately we have been having issues with her and constipation. Last week, she was extremely fussy and had a ton of trouble sleeping. When she finally did poop, it was a couple of hard little orange balls. They seemed pretty dry. I got her to eat some prunes, and after a couple more hard dry poops, we got back to our normal BMs. Anyway, back to my original question. Does anyone know which foods are constipating and which may help relieve it (besides prunes)? Also, does anyone know a good way to sneak in some more veggies? Thanks!
OT- I'd like to introduce some pasta, but am unsure what type (shape) would be the easiest for her to get a hold of and get into her mouth. Any ideas? Thanks again!
