Hi 👋🏻 LO is 7 months in just over a week. She has no teeth. We’ve been doing BLW for about 3-4 weeks now and it’s going well. Obviously introducing solids has firmed things up. However for a couple of days now LO seems to be struggling when she goes and when she does it’s a little amount. She’s also teething (which feels never ending). Anything I can give her to ease her belly?
BLW and constipation : Hi 👋🏻 LO is 7 months in just... - NCT
I did BLW with my daughter too and found the first few weeks and months really affected her ‘movements’. I steamed some prunes 🤢 mashed them and stirred them into yoghurt which helped things along. I wasn’t keen on giving her the prunes themselves before she had teeth as they are really chewy. On another note, your daughter is absolutely beautiful! X
Omg she's so cute Tugsgirl Amina was the same I tried kiwi juice and prunes. They worked a treat. Hope your keeping well. X
Were great hun thanks just in talks on weather we should have another round. I don't want her been an only child. It's hard tho due to my age and I'm still have sleep deprivation 2.5 years later 😂 yeah try the prunes you can get them little pouches which they can suck or you can spoon feed. Hope it works xx
Keep a food diary to see if particular foods affect her more. Offer more water, the bowels need lots of water to keep things moving. My son didn't have a solid stool until he was 3.5 years old, he has been diagnosed with gluten intolerance and now has very little gluten, if he doesn't drink enough water then he gets very constipated.
We tried all the usual recommendations (prunes, pears, drinking more water, lactulose etc) but the only thing that actually worked was movicol sachets. I’ve weaned him off it gradually and things have been fine for the last few months.
I think it was just down to development of his digestive system & eating a more varied diet now he’s a bit older. Maybe see the GP if none of the dietary recommendations work.
