Mine both refused anything but breastmilk (from the breast) Dh started getting them to take water from a straw, he would get alittle in the straw and put his finger over it and just let go on their tongue! They loved it after they understood wht the heck it was!
Ds was also terribly constipated when he was 3-4mo old ~ straining & everything, exclusively bf. A friend told me to eat blueberries (I had tried everything else including prune juice which just made me sick). The blueberries WORKED! I ate tons & tons!
When I used fruit in feeding them it helped too, they even loved the prunes
And...after the first month I could never get my milk through pumping so I always used water ans a Drop or 2 of unsweeted juice ~ for flavor in making the cereal for them...Sorry to ramble, I just had flashbacks!
to you Mama!!!!

Re: Just when I finally made it this far...


I started block feeding when she is nursing often and I added a breakfast in and she's already a completely different baby!!! She's much happier already and her poops changed back to normal. Thanks for all the advice! Also, I've been fortifying her cereal with formula because I make my own oatmeal and it's not quite as nutritious as the infant kind but much more fibrous. So with the added formula it should bulk it up a little bit!

Thanks so much again ladies...I was crying everytime I thought about the fact that she might have to have formula bottles. I'll give an update after her weight check next wednesday!
