She's 5 months but was premie by 4 weeks, I think we'll stop solids for a while.
Suppositories... Don't they hurt?? :-(
I really would stop solids, there really is no rush, breast milk will give her all the nutrients she needs, give her little tummy a rest and try again after 6 months
I Gave bub a suppository and she didn't scream or anything. I used a recipe we used in aged care equal parts all bran and prune juice heat in a saucepan until the bran mushes down add pureed pear until its a thick paste if its to runny add more bran. I give her 1Tbs morning and night until she is regular again

I just give my dd prune juice with her lunch and dinner... She wasn't keen to begin with, but now is fine with it... She is 10mo and I put about 30mls in a bottle - she doesn't usually drink it all.
Speaking from experience, I wish I tried the suppositories much sooner.
Definitely hold off solids until 6 months. BM has all that she needs.
My dd is now 7 months and has been on solids since 5 & 1/2 months. (she is breastfed). She now eats pumpkin or potato and rice or oat cereal. I will usually mix pear into her cereal since it helps to keep her from getting clogged. I noticed once starting solids she went from doing a bm every day to every couple of days. The child health nurses & my gp said its fine & not classed as constipation unless she goes 10 days without doing one or if they come out as hard as rocks. But if you are concerned then i agree with others that maybe just stick to bm a few days & see if that relieves it.
