    Default prunes

    A good food to feed the LO as one of his first foods?


    And while I'm in this forum, I'm supposed to get a food processor for X-Mas!

    Everyone will need prunes sooner or later!!

    I had to start giving them EVERY time my daughter had cereal because it always made her constipated. When I mix it with prunes, not problem and no major poo explosions.

    Good luck!

    Keep in mind though that prunes are very carby and sweet and heavy for the baby compared to other fruits.

    ok, so I should save them for when I think he is constipated?

    I didn't know that it would make them poop a lot. I knew that they wouldn't get constipated with it which was a + for me, but I don't know if I want to have a bunch of poopy dipes.

    Pears are a little bit gentler, but I would suggest something higher in fat for the first food (since BM is high fat & babies need it so much). How about avocadoes?

    Prunes are high in iron. Maybe just a teensy bit of prune. I agree with something more gentle.
