  • I would switch cereal to baby oat meal instead... which is also okay as a first food but doesn't cause constipation.

  • Try apple juice mixed in with his cereal

  • juice is useless. babies aren't suppposed to have ANYTHING but milk til they're AT LEAST 6 MONTHS. so no. cereal is just as useless. since they're so iron fortified, that's probably the cause of his constipation. just stop the cereal. talk to a pedi if things don't improve after a few days.

  • I had that problem my mom told me to give her just like 4 oz. of juice and it helped pass straight through only watered down apple juice though like 50/50 even if you use the frozen or the baby kind. Neither of my girls have had a problem since.
