My son turned 6 months on the 12th of may and ever since we started solids(i started giving him soilds around mid 4 months because he wanted to eat them so bad) he has had a harder time pooping.
I have gotten more concerned about it more recently because before i would just stop giving him solids other than prunes and he would go by the nxt day and it would be a biiig poopy but recently his poops have been hard to get out and not very often.
He goes like 4ish days without pooping and still we have to give him a suppository to get the poop out of him and sometimes i even have to literally help him by pulling the poopy out of him just cause i cant stand it hurting him so much and him haveing to try sooo hard!
Any suggestions on what i can do to help regulate him? Because i don't want to have to stick to certain foods because he loves his food and wants the varitey of more than just prunes apricots and such.
Thank you so much!
ps- I breastfeed and have since he was born...i forgot to add that in.
