Solids and Constipation in 6 Month Old Baby

Starting baby on solids can be an exciting time for parents and baby. Up until about 6 months of age formula and breastmilk are baby’s only source of food, so being able to introduce baby to new textures and tastes is exciting. 

Unfortunately the change in diet can lead to constipation. If starting solids leaves your 6 month old baby constipated here are some things you can do at home to help bring them some relief:

  • Mommy’s Bliss constipation ease is a safe and effective way to alleviate occasional constipation in baby.
  • Some foods and juices like pear, apple and prune have a laxative effect and can help to relieve minor constipation.
  • Gentle stomach massage and bicycling baby’s legs can help to get things ‘moving,’ try after a warm bath.

Some foods are more likely than others to cause constipation including:

  • rice cereal
  • bananas
  • carrots
  • cheese
  • yogurt

 

Consult your child’s pediatrician to ensure there is no underlying issue.

  1. try to give your baby any kinds of laxatives because they are too harsh for their little system.
    Give them lots of water, fruits with fiber such as plums, prunes, apricots, grapes or peaches. They might not be getting enough green vegetables in their diet. Broccoli, green beans, peas, lettuce, and spinach are all good greens to help them go.
    Avoid bananas and foods that are high in potassium and sodium, because they will cause constipation and fluid retention.

    Toddler magic tea is the best remedy to treat your toddler’s constipation and certain tummy related problems without any side effects. It’s totally organic herbal tea that contains no preservatives at all.
