My sweet little boy is about 6 weeks old now and for the past week he has been suffering from constipation off and on. My diet hasn't changed from when I first gave birth to him so I'm uncertain about what is causing it. I am breast feeding so my diet could be the cause and the cure for this dilemma.
I eat mostly organic whole foods, lots of fruits and veggies. I do eat meat which I source from local, free range farms. I also consume raw dairy from a local farm (cow's milk). I've been entirely gluten free for 5 weeks now because we both have sensitivities to it.
Since he's had this problem I've been drinking fennel, ginger and chamomile teas which hasn't helped him much. Some remedies that have helped are coconut oil in him bum with a q-tip. I also got some baby drops that contain fennel, chamomile, and ginger... this helped the first time.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
also, if you avoid dry, rough, cold &/or uncooked foods in your diet, it will help your breastmilk be more laxative for baby. cook using lots of healthy oils, especially ghee (clarified butter), sesame oil &/or coconut oil. ths is Ayurvedic wisdom, has been working for thousands of years.
