    Default BLW & constipation.

    DS is 6 months old, been having solids for about two weeks and is currently looking quite uncomfortable! He hadn't gone in a few days, he is breastfed. I tried brown sugar in water and he won't take it.. What else can I try?
    Thanks

    Pear juice ( juiced by me at home) works pretty much instantaneously. My 6 month takes about four tablespoons.

    Is he having lots of water with meals as well? Seems to help my dd keep things regular especially when she is eating cereals and thicker foods.
    You can try puréed prunes or prune juice (no added sugar) or as others have said pear tends to help also.

    You can hold off on the food and just breastfeed, if you think he needs a hand. It's a bit of a juggling act until their tummies get used to the new foods. All bubbas go through it, but adjust over time.
