    Default Baby is constipated after eating solids :-(

    DD has been interested in our food for a few weeks, she's had bananas a couple of times and apple last week and pear this week (one fruit one day once a week). She loves the food and is really good eater the problem is that she won't poop for a couple of days after eating solids, she's otherwise on BM and poops everyday at least once a day. She doesn't cry and isn't in pain but I can tell she's trying to go, anyway I've been doing the bicycle movement with her legs and putting her in my legs belly down rubbing her back which help her pass wind but still no poop... What can I do to help her?

    Banana is usually a culprit for constipation. Could you try her on kiwi fruit? I know DSs poos get really regular on kiwi fruit. Also keep up with the pear that will help move things along

    This happened to my DD too. I pureed some prunes and gave them to her, stopped the other solids and went back to milk in the meantime until the constipation cleared and then whrn it was cleared went a bit slower with the solids

    Definitely ditch the bananas and go with pears, prunes, pumpkin.

    Dumb questions but, with kiwi what do u do with the seeds? Should I give her more pear or once a week good enough? Also are we talking about fresh prunes or dried? And do I steam /cook them?? Sorry first baby... All new to me :-)

    Kiwi fruit seeds are fine to give, you will probably find them in her nappy the next day though! I just cut the top off the kiwi fruit and spoon it out. How old is your dd? You should be able to just give the prunes to her so she can suck on them. Personally I would give pear more often...just stew it in a little bit of water to soften it up I was the same when DS first started on solids its very natural to be confused oh and no question is a dumb one

    I don't really do kiwi fruit, too expensive where I live, but I would just do pears once a week and see how bub goes. It takes time for some bubs tums to adjust - my prem DS2 is having this issue as well!

    Oh with the prunes, I just put them in some water to rehydrate them and then mash with pear. I also give them as finger food to suck on.

    I stewed the dried prunes in water - boiled them up until they were mushy then mushed them some more

    DD loved them as they were so sweet

    Oh that sounds great I love prunes so I'll go get some tomorrow! She's 5 months but was premature by 4 weeks, I don't really have a need for her to eat solids I'm happy with BM except she so stares at us with goggly eyes when we eat I felt she wanted to start eating different foods. Anyway I like the idea of kiwi and prunes and mixing pears too, thanks ladies! Who knew I'd be so into poop... Watching it, getting excited when she does and talking about it all the time!
