My son is 6 months old and has been eating solids along with formula since he was about 5 months when he started getting interested in what his father and I were eating. He has had rice cereal, apples, pears. We just started him on bananas yesterday and he is constipated today. I already know how to treat the constipation but I am just curious about feeding him bananas again? Should I keep feeding him them so his body gets used to it or stop? Some might say he doesn't need solids but I have to give him StemEnhance (NOTHING to do with aborted babies) twice a day and need to give that to him in solids. Should I refrain from feeding him these? And if so, when can I try again?Answer Question

I agree that cereal is constipating and not needed.
If your baby is so sick as to need Stem Cell Enhancers your baby is probably being being seen by a hematologist. Normal babies need breastmilk 2 years. Babies with stem cell problems benefit from breastfeeding 3-6 years. Since your baby is only 6 mo it could be critical that you relactate. I have 3 children and a grandchild with a rare genetic blood disease and all of them would have died between the ages of 12 and 18 mo if they weren't breastfed. A LLL Leader or lactation consultant can help you relactate.
