I put tom on baby rice on the advice of my doc and HV and he loves it soooo much! he laughs and talks with his mouth full more than any other time of the day! and....his poops are now regular, but a little too regular! he poops once a day and really struggles with it. So i have been trying to give him water - not interested. Fruit flavour water - not interested. if i increase the water in his bottles, then he has to have less milk and he usually has 8oz anyway! So, i was holding off until 5 months to introduce other foods, but i think fruits are needed to counteract the rice to help his bowels. Has anyone found this and have any useful tips?? regardless of age! Should i alternate rice with fruit? or give him one serving of fruit a day and three servings of rice?? Got a sweet cooking apple tre ein my garden so i have no shortage of apples! He normally has a full tablespoon of baby rice with an 8oz bottle 4 times a day.
