I have a 7 month old who has been doing solids sience 6 months. Just this week she started eating a whole 4 oz jar of squash as well as latter getting a table spoon of apple sause misked with a tabble spoon of rice cereal and some water. I also have been gving her juice.

She breast feeds at 7 am

then 10 am

gets the squash areound 12pm

then breast feeds at 1 pm

and 4pm

then gets the apple sauce and rice cereal around 5:30-6 pm

feeds at 7 and usually that is a 40-50 mint feed right before bed.

She gets water and juice though out the day but only a little bit

I don't know what could be wrong and am not giving her the apple sauce and rice cereal tonight just in case thats it. any advise welcome

My breastfeeding baby had severe constipation and gas trouble;e and it was hard to go for bowel movement but since I put him on Babies magic tea he's much better.

I have a dear friend whose 2 year old literally broke their toilet because her poo was so huge and hard. She was only going about once a week. I know your little one is much younger but it's possible that the same could apply. This one was drinking lots of milk and very little water. They cut back the milk and upped the water to solve the problem. I personally have limited my baby to juice only at meals. She gets water the rest of the time. So many kids pack around juice constantly and it's just not as good for them. Can be really hard on teeth and it's so much easier to deal with spilled water on carpet and furniture. It's at least worth a try. Good luck.

Solids in a tummy that is not quite ready for them can be binding. But is she truly and actually constipated (hard pellets)? Or is this just a behaviour related to the complex and sometimes strange feeling of having a bowel movement?

Anyways, reducing solids and increasing breastmilk intake is a great way to get back to square one.
