My dd (6 months next week) started solids 2 days ago and has had tummy discomfort at night as a result . She had colic as a little bub and I worried that this might happen.
I just gave her 2 tsp of jar food - pumpkin & sweetcorn 2 days ago and then again yesterday. She loved it and kept grabbing the spoon to put it in her mouth with the food. She's well & truly ready for eating from a development point of view.
I'm not sure what to do now. Should I stop solids & try again in a few weeks? But she's trying to pinch our food when we eat. Or should I just try something else? What is least likely to cause issues? Farex upset my ds's tummy so I wasn't going to give my dd that, but I thought other things would hopefully be ok.
All thoughts welcome.

Hi my dd is 6months old in 1.5 weeks.... And mine too loves solids..... She also seemed to have gotten an upset tummy off of it at first but I still gave it to her cos she loves eating it lol... She seems fine on it now and has had it since 4months old. I bought farax But havent given it to her as shes happy with just the jar stuff. Hope that helps a lil

I would also suggest trying some fresh "real" food. Let her suck on some broccoli trees or a cooked bit of pumpkin..

Was it a mixture of both sweetcorn and pumpkin? Maybe the corn is a bit much for her tummy for the moment. Corn can make me feel bloated at times. Try something like avocado as I heard that it is easier to digest (similar to breast milk). Of course only offer a teaspoon or so at first for a few days.......

It's the corn!
Corn in a insoluble fibre, and is very hard to break down ( especially by babies) which is why a lot of mums will tell you it comes out still whole at the other end! Corn is great food but not for babies starting out as it will cause tummy upsets, the best time for corn is about 10 months plus, when they can actually gnaw on a corn cob
As pp have said, I would steam/roast some sweet potato and just try it on its own, or mash avocado or even raw cucumber sticks for her to gnaw on, watermelon and pear are also good!

Maybe try giving her potato, avocado or even pumpkin... Jar food can sometimes make DS throw up. Maybe try some fresh foods for her.
