Question: Hi my baby is 6 month old and i started to give him semi solid like raagi as per pediatricians advice but his poop is so hard and some blood in his stool what can i do?
Answer: I can understand how difficult it must be for both of you.This is due to constipation and blood is due to hard stools. constipation is common in babies as their digestive system is weak. Take care of your diet if you are feeding, as food which causes indigestion to you can bring indigestion and constipation to baby. Apply warm oil on babies tummy and massage, exercise babies legs as if baby is cycling, you drink lot of water especially before and after feeding. If baby cries due to pain, you need to consult doctor and start colicaid drops. As long as baby is active, taking feed well nothing to worry.Take care

Question: my baby have constipation he passes stool after 4/5 days .and passes hard stool n he cries alot ....should i go to doctor?
Answer: Breast fed babies almost never get constipated where as for formula fed babies usually face this problem. Do the bicycle legs. Take babies temperature. Massage her tummy. Place the baby on her back n rub with ur plam in clock wise motion. For a minute or 2. Give ur baby a warm bath the thing is the hot water will soothe ur baby. Getting him to relax so he can let go of everything he s holding. Never use a laxative as babies are too little they can get seriously dehydrated and lead to other complications.

Constipation in a 8 months old is sign that you are offering more solids and less water what he/she needs pls note a 8 months old needs 2 meals a day plus a snack rest all milk, pls offer water and feed frequently to keep him hydrated You can try pitted prunes, take 2 spoon of Oats cook it till done add prune puree and feed at night Please avoid offering Banana, Apple Rice and Toast this time. Papaya, prunes, pears, plums, green leafies, okra, oranges, radish will help in easing constipation.. Good luck!
