Constipated?

I had been giving my 6 month old 1 TBLS of peas once daily and he wasnt digesting it well. Is this a sign we're not ready for solids or not ready for peas?

Re: Constipated?

Have you tried any other solids? Maybe if you tried something else, you'd know if it's the food or not.

I don't think it's a sign of not being ready for solids. At 4-6 mo they are definitely considered "ready" for solids. When you say he wasn't digesting it well, what exactly do you mean? Could you be more specific? They do start pooping less when you introduce solids, if that's what you mean. I would try a different food like pp said and see how that goes

My Mood:
Are you making your own peas or jarred ones? Pea shells are rough on tummies and need to be removed if you're making your own. There are tools for that.

And many babies arent really ready for solids that early. Neither of mine were until 10 months. Its perfectly fine to wait a bit.
