My 10 month old eats only bm, plus one fruit/veggie meal a day. She also eats cheerios during our meals or if we are at the mall or somewhere where she is bored and needs something to do. She drinks no water really, just sips of mine from time to time, no formula or juice. A few times I have let her have a Gerber fruit wheel (baby junk food), but not even every day or every other day. When she eats the "meal" I usually sprinkle organic brown rice or oats powder into the veggies to thicken it just a bit, but I do not feed her "cereal" meals. What gives? The poor thing has to strain and strain to poop and then only the tiniest hershey kiss comes out. It is black and thick (not to be gross). But the volume seems WAY different than when she was all BM. But I guess it is just all condensed or something. I can't figure it out. I have not been to the ped. about this. Should I? I am giving her prunes as I type, but do I really have to add an whole new mealtime to her day just to keep her regular now that she is not 100% bf? My hubby is concerned that too much table food/water will encourage her to wean. I am just confused. My boys NEVER got constipated. Do you think it is the cheerios? Thanks Mommas!
