    We always keep a pkg of organic prune puree on hand just in case, and if our LO is eating lots of food that will delay a BM we sneak a little bit of prunes in between, so it'll be: bananas, prunes, cheese. Or something like that. (but my LO is almost 1 year old so he's pretty much eating everything in sight and will rarely let anything puree'd in his mouth.)

    I make all of my own pureés, except for apples-I just buy a big jar from the grown-up section of all-natural, no sugar added applesauce. It's just as healthy and delicious as homemade (which I understand is a more difficult pureé to make at home b/c you have to peel the apples), and much more cost effective than baby applesauce. My ds loves it mixed with avocados...well, just about anything really. I think he likes the texture.

    At what age can babies try coconut? Sounds yummy!!! Is it a natural laxative?

    ...and BTW, I read the fibermenace.com site. It has a wealth of info in it. Thanks for sending that along. My mom's side of the family has bad problems with colon health and much of what I read sounded culpable. Since my ds has their heredity, I think being armed with this info can only help.

    Glad you found some of it helpful! There are no age restrictions on trying coconut, as far as I know. The oil/fat in it is a good "lubricant" and it has lots of good nutrients that keep electrolytes in balance. Good luck!
