Constipated breastfed 6 month old

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

I started giving my baby rice cereal about 1 month ago. last week I slowly started trying her with some baby food. She now seems constipated and uncomfortable. I pureed some prunes and gave her them this afternoon. Is there anything else I can do to help her?

She didnt poop yesterday or today, she usually poops 2-3 times a day. And she was majorly gassy and seemed to be uncomfortable. right after I posted this she pooped. She usually poops in the mornings, so for her not to poop seemed odd! lol thank for ur help.

How long has it been since she's pooped? And does she seem to be straining or gassy? How old is she? Breastfed babies can have really funny pooping "schedules" and it can be completely normal for one to only poop once a week or even once every ten days. Mine on the other hand poops like three times a day lol did you only notice this after a certain food?
