I started my dd on rice cereal. After 1 week without a bm, I tried giving her peas (which are supposedly supposed to be high in fiber). She finally had one a couple of days later. But it's been 3 days since then and she hasn't had another one. I haven't given her cereal for over a week, but the peas are not helping much anymore. Her doctor recommended an over the counter supository for infants, but I would like to avoid this as well as any other medicines. I'd rather use a more natural method. Besides, when she had one a few days ago, it was not hard, but it was thicker that usual. However, she had a hard time passing it for several days...she would stress really hard and start to cry. Would too much sugar in my diet cause her to have a hard time? How long do I have to cut out the cereal before her bowels will go back to normal? What other baby foods might help her to go?
