I would... that's where they get the iron etc. You want to use this time to expose them to things and help their bodies learn to digest all things. Are you also bf or formula feeding? How old is your lo? I add cereal to everything... I just quit because my son is 8 mo and I started feeding him dairy here and there and he eats a lot of Cheerios lol. My oldest got constipated too... But I started adding apple juice cut with water and that really helped.

Cereal and baby food are not necessary for either breastfed or formula fed babies. It is sometimes considered to be easier to use it as far as checking for food sensitivities and it practice for chewing and swallowing. The extra iron in cereal is probably what is constipating him. You can cut back on the cereal if you want to still give it, or cut it out. You can just also just wait and give finger and/or table foods when they're ready.
