    We have the opposite problem. I don't let her have much grains. Usually what I let her have is some sprouted bread, so it's the "good" stuff. Actually I think what triggered her constipation was starting her on fruit and veggies. I know, crazy, right? I think the raw fiber was too much for her to handle and stretched out her colon.

    I didn't really find a good way to get the fats in her that she needed at first, and just assumed the BFing would be enough. I really think her first foods should have been mainly fats and protein, and then her intestines wouldn't have gotten stretched out, causing the vicious cycle of constipation. So now I'm trying to fix her diet and heal her gut at the same time. We were doing really well for a month or so, and just had a backslide.

    dr sears has some realy good info on starting solids on his web site...

    Pooping that much at one would still be fine if baby is getting mostly breastmilk and is mostly self feeding.
    AS long as its not hard or painfull.

    Sally Fallon has a book you can check out:
    http://www.amazon.com/Nourishing-Tra.../dp/0967089735

    that was sited on that list of references on that web page.
    ITs more about what people around the world ate before refined flour and corn syrup.

    Yes, this is unfortunate. However, I think we can all glean good info from both sources (LLL & WAPF).
