What is a snack I can eat the night before my colonoscopy/gastroscopy? Doc said no solid food, what is ok to eat?
You can drink all the water you want. Some low residue foods like Jello are ok but no solids once you get to within 24 hours of the Colonscopic examination. You can drink tea and some of the sodas up until 12 hours before procedure...after that water only.

I am having a colonoscopy/endoscopy. Can I consume any type of protein shake/powder or solid food on Mon., my papers just say to avoid food after 4pm?
No only liquid: You are supposed to be on liquid diet for two days prior while getting the prep to clean your colon and flush it from everything so it will be super clean during colonoscopy only water and juices and jello not even milk allowed. No milk shake or smoothies no solid food, you are getting very poor instructions and bad preparation for an important test any doubt call your doctor ...Read more
No: It is probably too late by now! ...Read more
I've been doing a colonoscopy prep and am now only passing greenish liquid, however it feels like there might be something solid left. Is this common? Last three trips to toilet were all liquid.
I have severe inflamation in my rectum. I bleed everytime I try to poo and rarely do a solid faeces. I've had colonoscopy and biopsies taken?
Await biopsy report: The biopsy report should give you the answer or at least suggest several possibilities for your physician to consider. The source of bleeding can be as simple as hemorrhoids but can also be a local ulcer or something more aggressive. ...Read more
Doing colonoscopy prep. On second laxative and all that comes out is a bit of yellowish solid that falls to the bottom of the toilet. Was liquid before. What is it?
Stool: It must have been some of your stool which finally migrated all the way down to your anus and out of your body. Your gastroenterologist appreciates that in that he will be able to have a clear view of your entire colon because you did such a good bowel prep and he will not have to clean you out from the rear end, so to speak. ...Read more
4-7 months: Starting solid foods between 4 & 7 months seems to be a "window of opportunity" for best success, least problems (e.g., allergies.) use only whole grains and healthy foods. No white rice cereal! As dr. Greene says, "let kids' first bite be real food - such as mashed avocado, banana, sweet potato, or whole grains (like whole oats or brown rice). There's no good reason not to... They'll thank you.". ...Read more
Depends: In a baby who is meeting developmental milestones and has no underlying medical conditions that would prohibit introduction of solid foods, the earliest they should be introduced is between age 4-6 months. Breastmilk or formula should still be the main source of calories at this age. Make an appointment with your pediatrician to talk about how to introduce solids and to see if your baby is ready. ...Read more
When experiencing severe symptoms from diverticulitis, your doctor may recommend a liquid diverticulitis diet as part of your treatment, which can include: water, fruit juices, broth, and ice pops. As your condition improves, you may be able to advance your diet.
Please stick to the diet recommended by your physician. You may actually need a high fiber diet later on to prevent recurrence. ...Read more
Slowly: I recommend starting solid foods at 4 months for bottle fed babies and 6 months for breast fed babies. I recommend starting one new food at a time with small amounts. I increase slowly over 3 to 4 days to observe for any reaction then start the next food. I usually start with cereal mixed with breast milk or formula fed with a spoon. Next I offer yellow and green vegetables then fruit. ...Read more
6 months: Years ago, breastfeading was frowned on & many made "formula" from boiled cow milk&karo. Since cow milk is designed for calves, infants were fed early & often to make up for deficiences in cow milk. Now that breast is back, or formulas mimic breast, solids are optional. The sitting child is more capable of participating & few sit before 6m. Babies can wait past a year and thrive. ...Read more
Not necessarily: What a patient eats should depend on the reason for the iv, what the patient finds palatable, what the physician thinks is best, whether or not there is a nutritional deficit or a need for a certain type of food (eg, to see if the IV can be removed if solid food is tolerated). There are many approaches to feeding, and women should request an open discussion with the people writing the food orders. ...Read more
Tastes change...: At this age, tastes can seem to change by the day. If your baby likes some foods but not others, this is probably normal. Make an appointment with a pediatrician to discuss the proper way to introduce new foods. ...Read more
Liquids: If you for some reason can't take any solids then you can get your nutrients via liquid supplements such as milk shakes (boost for example), protein shakes. I would also take a daily multivitamin if you are able to take pills either whole or crushed. Of course of this is long term then you certainly need to explore more long term options. For a short time however these things could work. ...Read more
Depends...: Depends on age and other factors. In general, pureed vegetables and cereals come before meats and dairy (other than breast or formula); single ingredients before mixed; no-no's include: chunks (choking hazard), honey (botulism), eggs/fish/seafood (more allergenic), salt and sugar (addictive), and juices (juice is a fruit from which all good stuff has been removed.). ...Read more
Food introduction: The general recommendation for food introduction in infants is rice cereal at 4 months, vegetables at 5 months, fruits and fruit juices at 6 months, finger foods & meats at 9 months. A three meal two snack schedule is the usual goal, but adapting this schedule to your family's normal routine should be fine as long as your baby is comfortable and gaining weight appropriately. ...Read more
Baby cereal: When your baby is 4-6 months old it's usually time to start trying solid foods. For most babies the first food is rice creal or infant oatmeal mixed with breastmilk or formula. These baby cereals provide a great source of iron for your growing infant. Other early options are banana, avacado or cooked potatoes and sweet potatoes mashed and thinned with a little breast milk. ...Read more
Birth, but: Fifty years ago some kids were fed solids as soon as they got home because the home made formula was better for cows than babies. Noe that breast feeding or modern formulas are here, they do not need anything for the first year. Most recommend they start after they can sit up and the tongue thrust fades at 6mo. Early feedings risk hospitalization for food reactions, later, not so risky. ...Read more

My baby is 6 months old before three weeks we started solid foods now two days he suddenly stoped eating dorsnt even want to touch the spoon why?
How should I feed my 6 month old? Nurse and give solid foods together or nurse and awhile later give her solid foods? What's a good eating pattern?
Oral/social develpmt: Solid feedings at this age are not essential for nutrition yet--in my opinion, it is really to take advantage of your baby's changing oral skills & allow them to learn to take something off a spoon, and to let them get practice at that skill. Once a day is enough for that, but many parents gradually acclimate them to mealtimes over the following weeks to build their 'socialization' around that.. ...Read more
Depends: Burping gets out air. Period. If your child is not especially gassy, then they don't gulp air when they eat, and you don't have to burp them. If they are gassy all the time and gulp air when they eat, then you should be more aggressive with burping. Some kids never burp after eating anything, some burp all the time. If your child is eating, happy, and not bloated, then don't worry about it. ...Read more
Yes: Babies are generally ready for solid foods between 4-6 months. Does your baby have good head control? Does your baby look interested in the food you are eating? If so, then now is the time to introduce some solid food. Start with whole grain cereal- you make it with formula or breastmilk. ...Read more
4-6 months: Starting complementary solid foods is as much a psychological/emotional decision as it is medical. Research on food allergies shows that starting somewhere between 4-6 months may be optimal. Equally important is what you feed - start with fresh organic fruits and vegetables if you can. ...Read more
Have doctor evaluate: At 6 months of age, one can try giving the baby some baby cereal (prepared with water or formula). If the baby is able to move the cereal around in his mouth, and swallow most of it, they he is ready for solid baby foods. If the baby seems to keep sticking his tongue forward and push the cereal out, then he should practice off and on for 2-3 more weeks. If still unsuccessful, see the doctor. ...Read more
