Just wanting any tips or advice on how to help a little one who seems to be constipated (quite large hard balls of poo) and very distressed and uncomfortable when passing poo? Brief history:-
Still breastfed, no formula
I'm waiting to see a paed in couple of weeks for suspected food allergies/intolerances as he's always had lots of mucus in his poo. That seems to have improved a lot since I've cut out dairy and egg.
He's been on solids for about 2 months, mainly doing blw so a typical day would be 1/2 kids wheetabix in morning made with almond milk and few spoonfuls fruit purée plus spoonful baby probiotics, lunch and dinner is a mixture of finger food such as mango, kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, nectarines, sweet potato, occasionally flaked white fish or cooked chicken, and sometimes some toast with margarine.
He's not having any dairy or eggs yet and he's only had banana occasionally (I know this used to make ds1 a bit constipated). So my question is are there any foods im giving him that usually cause constipation as it seems to be mostly fruit and high fibre foods? He's not great at taking milk especially during the day so I'm also trying to give him some water especially during the hot weather. Could it just be mild dehydration? Any good foods that might help?
