i started giving rice cereal, banana, carrot puree to my baby.. along with BM.he is pooing very little and hard... any suggestions plz help out.

Sheeba Vijesh

rice cereal makes baby constipated... soak 3-4 black raisins in little water overnight, morning strain the juice in water and give to baby... it will help

Ujjwala Give him water as well. As you are feeding with solids... baby require more liquid to digest as they pee often. That's why poo will be hard. After peeing give him BM or water.

Rhituparna Mitra

Banana and carrots are great first foods. Just give it some time. Their digestive system is still immature. If everything goes well, keep trying new foods in every 10 days

Sonali Shivlani

As you have started solids you also need to start water as that will help with the digestion process.
