Raisins help a constipated baby, and they're sweet so babies like them. (just don't give her too many or you'll get more than you hoped for at diaper changing time!)

I might cut them in half for a ten-month-old, but she'll probably still be able to pick them up and feed them to herself.

Make your own, feed table foods...mac n cheese(mix with tuna, peas, cauliflower, or salmon), peas, green beans, carrots, applesauce, pear slices, peaches, orange segments, nitrate free hot dogs, mashed potatoes, sweet potato fries, cheerios, granola bars, cottage cheese, cheese sticks, spaghetti, mini meatballs, grapes (cut in half or quarter them), raisins, tomatoes, tofu sticks, squash (yellow zucchini or butternut), pickles, crackers, teddy grahams, goldfish/bunny crackers, diced potatoes, diced plum, creamed corn, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal (mix with pureed fruits, raisins, applesauce, cinnamon/brown sugar), breaded cheese sticks (cut in 3rds), cream of wheat, whole wheat rotini pasta with a dipping sauce (meat sauce, marinara, cheese, other), avocado slices (I thought it tasted nasty, but my daughter loved it), banana, fruit juices/vegetable juices, or whatever you are making for yourself/family.



Sorry if I repeated anything!

I have been reading recently (as my 3 year old eats the same things all the time as well) that you have to introduce a food sometimes 10 to 15 times before a child will even try it. As long as your 10 month old still has breastmilk or formula, foods are not as important before they are a year old. Keep trying things...what about applesauce, yogurt, cheerios? Those are things both my kids like!

By 10 months your baby should be able to eat soft small pieces of "adult" food. My daughter eats bananas, apple pieces, toast, noodles, any soft/small veggies, basically whatever you are eating (within reason, obviously!) It's often trial and error! Good luck.

Krista my suggestion to new moms, is allow the child to feed themselves! First off its fun for them, second its always a learning experence for them, and third its what I have done with all my children, and my kids eat everything. By everything I mean all veggies all fruits, all meats, and all "strange" food.



My oldest fav food is eel, and sushi

My 2nd fav foods is shrimp, and anything with cow LOL

My 3rds fav food is octipus, and anything in the fridge.

Oh and I almost forgot! pancakes, toast, waffles, french toast, pizza, apple juice will help with any constipation.

10-15 times?!?! That's crazy, but helpful:) She won't eat anything I have to feed her with a spoon, she has to do it all herself! I guess I'll just keep at it!

The problem is she only wants to eat bananas, cheese, and pasta.....all of which make her constipated! And I don't know how healthy it is for a baby to eat the same food over and over??
