My son (8m) is having some constipation issues. He is still mostly EBFed, but he does eat some solids. We've eliminated the ones that typically cause constipation (rice cereal, bananas). We've tried lots of ideas to help him poo, (TMI) but he gets these hard balls that seem to stop him up. We've tried apple juice, prunes, pears, warm baths and tummy massages, thermometer in the bum to stimulate...nothing works. I've been reading that 1 tsp of flax seed oil a day can help with constipation and it's a nutritious source of omege 3 fatty acids.
Do any of you give your lo flax seed oil. If for constipation, does it work?
