    Has anyone, recently starting their LO's on solids, noticed that they're a bit constipated? Also B's poos have gone totally solid - no more exploding mush, actually solid poop!

    She seems to be straining a lot of the time too but not alot is actually happening. Is this normal?Or should he stools still be loose? I've been giving her lots of water and yesterday I squeezed some fresh orange juice for her water too but she didn't go all day.

    Any advice? X

    Owens were like that for the first couple of months but they have gone back to loose now. We tried everything but nothing worked. I think thier little tummies just need time to adjust to the food. The only thing I noticed is that a daily bowl of shreddies seems to help keep him regular (too regular!)
