Maybe you should find a better pediatrician. At 6 months try giving him 2oz of juice with 1oz water 3 times a day and this should help with his constipation. Also you have to remember he was a premi so he may have some delay's in certain areas and it's totally normal :)

Depending on how old your little one is he doesn't need to be eating food until about 5 months old. As far as playing with toys that also goes along with age my little boy didn't really hold or play with toys till he was about 4 months of age. And pooping, is he constipated? If so that prob means he needs more water. Depending on his age give in 2oz of water 2-3 times a day and if he doesn't like just water do 1oz baby juice with 1oz water. I recommend you take your little one in to be seen by a pediatrician if you are truly concerned.
