I've heard avacados work for constipation, too, but we haven't had much luck w/ that.
    D has avocado every day and I haven't noticed that it helped. I get Safeway O Organics Pureed Prunes as we avoid Gerber. Earth's Best also makes them, but they are almost half the amount for more $.

    Where do you get those organic prunes (what kind of grocery store?) I haven't seen them, yet. I'd like to avoid Gerber, too.

    I tried prunes with Riley, they seemed to make him gassy and hurt his tummy. Peaches worked really well, though. He still has a peach most days now to keep him regular.

    Kate suffered with constipation. Bananas always backed her up! Things that helped were pears, raisins, blueberries and 100% apple juice (all organic). HTH!
    Mother - Wife - Artist - Cook - Writer - EnvironMENTAList - Cloth Diaperer (but we are soooo done with diapers) - Organic Health Nut...I'm sure there's more.

    It is yummy and I usually polish it off. I just cut the pear in half and sprinkle on some cinnamon. I usually put it on some foil w a little olive oil so it doesn't stick. I bake at around 350 until soft. Its great right out of the oven. Cools quick.

    Thanks for the recipe! Cinnamon is a rather strong herb which I could never figure how much to use. I'll try a sprinkle as advised but is there anything else that I could replace cinnamon with? I supposed I could throw in some raisins too eh?
