my daughter started solids a month ago when she was 6 months. she was okay until a few weeks ago and then i noticed she was straining and her poop became adult-like. my ped said the adult-like poop is normal but the straining is probably constipation. i'm feeding her baby food from jar and we've done rice cereal, bananas, apples, sweet potato, carrots, and peas.
anyhow, is it the solids? i've read rice cereal and bananas can be constipating but she hasn't had rice cereal for awhile and bananas she didn't like so i stopped it for awhile. my suspicion is that she's not getting enough liquids. i try to give her water and she takes a bit. she's breastfeeding like usual i think...but i have this suspicion that i don't seem to be producing as much milk anymore.
so what should i do? decrease solids? increase water and/or add prune juice? maybe supplement with formula to make sure she's getting her fill of milk?
