    When we first introduced BLS, my son had issues with constipation too. It took a while to find a balance of foods and water which worked, and which foods helped to move things along for him. Like pears, melons, watermelons, and just adequate amounts of water.

    Its the live and active cultures that are in yogurt.. The good bacteria that everyone needs in their guts. They sell them for infants.. its usually a powder that you keep in the fridge and can mix with food.

    We made pears part of ds's daily diet (or almost daily). They've been a godsend. Something that ds loves is to chew on pears in the mesh teether. I've also found that butternut squash helps keep things moving for my son. My dh likes to give ds bananas b/c ds likes them so much, but they constipate him. We used to give prune juice for constipation, but they create excess gas, among other things.
