This month I have started my 5month old on apple/ pear juice and rice/oatmeal cereal, being careful to space out when a new introduction is given...After given apple juice, which i thought was suppose to be a natural laxitive, he did not poo for two days, and when he finally did tonight it was quite pastey....and seems to be a lot more gassy since juice was introduced also....
we had already had issues a few months ago with severe constipation and realized he is allergic to cow's milk, so we figured out a formula, Emfimil Nutramigen, and has been 'going' regularly since...
Do you think the apple juice doesn't aggree with him or perhaps I have been giving him too much cereal...? He is 19lbs and 29in long, a big boy, not the average sized baby ;) Anyone have any suggestions or compareable stories?
