6 months old baby started eating organic made baby food. Now is constipated.she's had sweet potatoes, banana, Apple's, peas, squash, zucchini. ?

Why the rush: Solids in the first year do not help the baby grow better.Breast milk is an adequate nutrition source, and solids today are primarily a training process to transition them to the table. Apples and bananas are constipating agents. Prunes & pears loosen stools. I'd quit the rush through the list of foods and just keep it simple. ...Read more

I've taken my 6 year old son to several specialist moving he's bowls every 2 weeks no diagnoses ?

Work with one doctor: If a child has a chronic problem such as "pooping only every 2 weeks", the parents can get opinions from 3 pediatric gastroenterologists (stomach doctors). The parents should select the doctor they feel most comfortable with, and work with that doctor for a few months. The doctor can clear the bowels and do tests to determine a diagnosis and treatment, over several weeks, or sooner if necessary. ...Read more
