    If you believe your baby is constipated, please stop giving him rice cereal. Actually, don't give him any solids, especally cereal until his poops go back to normal.

    All baby cereals can be constipating, though rice is the worst.

    Oatmeal cereal is slightly higher of an alergen than rice is. Other than that, there is little difference in the cereals beyond taste.

    I think it may help to use a whole grain cereal, such as brown rice or oatmeal. They would have more fiber, which may help your little one go.

    My DS sometimes goes a few days between bowel movements. Try not to get too worried. Just make sure you take a change of clothes if you go out!
