My LO is 5.5 months and is enjoying his solids. So far tried pumpkin, sweet potato, potato, avocado, pear, rice cereal and baby porridge (brown rice+millet+oats).
Last few days his No 2 was getting lumpier so I think he's heading towards constipation.
I am thinking it is the rice cereal causing it but my question is, is it the rice or the iron that's the culprit?
Also, will brown rice be alright to give to help constipation? Or should I stop both types of rice? The brown rice is part of the baby porridge he's eating.
Seeking some advice. Thanks!

Rice Cereal Causing Constipation. Brown rice cereal Okay to Give?

I would say stop the cereal altogether - babies under 6 months dont have enough adequate enzymes needed to digest starches , especially processed ones , they really don't need cereal so try cutting it out and just keep giving fresh food

Yeah I wouldn't bother with rice cereal and see if that improves things.

My bub is also suffering from constipation; have given prune juice (stewed and pureed prunes with added water) today and just apple and pear for dinner with breastfeeds. I had been giving her pureed veg and fruit but adding brown rice cereal. ideally wanted to do blw but had to commence solids early due to paed and gp advice.
