My ped suggested we start my 5 month old on solids so we introduced rice cereal. It went over okay. She didn't seem to love or hate it. We fed her bm and cereal 3 times over two days. Since then she has only had one bowel movement in the past 5 days ( she used to have them daily) and she has had extremely foul smelling gas. We stopped the cereal thinking there might be some correlation. She has also begun waking up about every two hours during the night to nurse when she used to only wake 1 - 2 times. Does anyone have any insight to what may be going on. Is it a digestion problem? Maybe she wasn't ready for solids? The nurse at my ped said not to be concerned unless she goes more than 6 days without a bowel movement and that the cereal has nothing to do with it. My lo is exclusively breastfed other than the rice cereal. Any advice?
