Did pizza hurt my baby's tummy?

I have been exploring foods with my 12 month old, like wheat pasta with tomato sauce and fresh steamed veggies, grilled chicken, salmon, etc. Well last night we decided to have a little fun with him and we cut up a piece of cheese pizza for him. Of course he loved it, but he would not sleep comfortably last night and he hasn't pooped today yet. I feel terrible. What should I do?

  • the cheese may have caused some mild constipation. try some diluted juice and see if it helps

  • dont feel bad. just give him some juice and see if that helps. If not try some pedia-lax, My dd had some constipation at about a year and I gave her a little of this and it fixed the problem then next time try the pizza with less cheese or giving him a smaller amount.

  • Thanks, ladies! I just felt so irresponsible, I thought he would be ok. I realized he wasn't last night when he couldn't sleep. We'll see what the juice does.
