My daughter just turned 6mo yesterday. We had been trying to start her on rice cereal since about 4months, but she had problems with constipation. We added karosyrup, but it didnt seem to help too much. We stopped the rice cereal, so I was wondering, can we skip the rice cereal altogether and just go straight to the pureed baby foods, since they are less thick? She eats 6oz of formula about every 2 and a half hours, and its definitley not holding her. I know I need to add solids, Im just not sure how to approach it withour the constipation happening again. Thanks for any advice!Answer Question

You can absolutely skip the cereal. And just a word about the Karo syrup...stay away from it, it carries a risk of botulism poisoning, and their website specifies that it's not intended for infants.
