Answer: The intake of solid food will start constipation in babies. You need to introduce solid foods only by 8th month. During 6 months, you can start giving semi solid foods only. Make sure to make porridges with formula milk and not cow milk. After cooking the porridge, and cooling it, add prepared formula milk and not cows milk. Intake of cows milk too can cause constipation issues. You can give breast milk to solve this issue. But if it still does not work out, ask your doctor of a good remedy

Question: Is it normal not to poo every day if a baby is taking solid food...
Answer: No it's not normal. Your baby has constipation. Generally in this age it's very normal to baby have constipation. Don't worry you can do lots of things to remove it. First of all.... Increase Water Consumption try giving her an additional 2-4 ounces (1/4-1/2 cup) of water after each feeding to help bowels flush properly.  Start juice slowly with less than 2 ounces of juice after feedings. Feed High-Fiber Foods Bananas, rice cereal, carrots, and cheese are a mainstay of most infant diets--they also tend to have a binding effect on stool. Foods like apricots, pears, prunes, peaches, and plums are better choices to help avoid constipation. Give Your Baby “Bicycle Legs Lift up his legs and move them in a circular motion to mimic the motions of peddling a bicycle. The movement should help to release some abdominal pressure. Try a Different Brand of Formula try a few brands to find the one your baby tolerates best. Most brands have a low-lactose option, which your baby may tolerate better.  Massage Her Tummy  massage your baby’s tummy in ever bigger circles. Follow your baby’s cues as to how much pressure to use. If she fusses or cries, you’re pressing too hard. Give bonnisan syrup 2.5 ml in the morning and evening for 3 to 4 days.  It will help.

Question: My son is not taking food
Answer: Ur baby is too small to digest the solid food as it is their starting time to start solid. U don't force ur baby to eat otherwise they will vomit. Ur baby's digestive system is still developing. So, if ur baby is taking proper breastfeeding and is active enough then u don't need to worry Try to make him sit with u when u are eating. This way baby will learn to eat the food
