I have an 8 month old who has a terrible time doing a poo. She eats weet bix for breakfast with milk, apple and prunes. I add spinach to her bolognaise sauce. She eats very few bananas. I try to give her a balanced diet with as much water as she will take. Do you have any other suggestions. She is on Nan HA2 which i give after meals. Often when she is pushing to poo she goes purple and her milk / yoghurt often comes out through her nose and it might take 6 little pebbles before she finally has a substantial movement. Pretty awful to watch.
- Increasing baby`s intake of water, offer water as often as you can, babies don`t have a great thirst reflex.
- Check the dilution of baby`s formula and ensure that the scoop is not packed
- Use more formula in baby`s foods and increase the watery-consistency of one of babies meals (not all of them as you want to keep progressing up the texture scale)
