quick question for you moms, since my PED is useless to ask cause we aren't on the same page.
Been giving my LO Happy Bellies oatmeal (organic) for a week now, it has 90%iron. I wasn't giving him any oatmeal or rice cereal because the rice cereal constipated him. But when I went to PED last week for 6 month check she insisted he has something with the iron. I give him a tablespoon with fruit in morning and a tablespoon with veggies at night. For the past couple days he poops like a play dough consistency poop. He acts like he is really pushing too (but he has always made grunting sounds when pooping).
Anyways, I have read and talked to moms about how they just skipped this oatmeal/rice cereal stuff but I just don't know what to do. I have also read the importance of iron after 6 months.
What do you moms do or recommend? Should I maybe stick with it and add a little prunes every day?
