I have an almost-8-month-old who is very easily constipated. She eats some solid foods--pears, apples, peas, prunes--which she loves to eat. I have stopped giving her bananas, cereals, or sweet potatoes, but she is still not having loose stools all the time. She really has to strain to go poop, and then the poop is quite firm. I tried giving her fruit juice (about 2 ounces a day), which seems to help a bit, but if I don't give it to her she's immediately constipated again. Please help. What should I do? Stop giving her any solids? Give different solids? Could it be something in my diet (she is breastfed, no formula)? Also, if this should be posted in a different area, please let me know. Thank you.
