weaning and poo - sorry if tmi!

I started weaning Joshua 3 weeks ago and he now has veg at lunch and fruit for dinner. I also switched to hungry baby milk a week ago as his feeding was getting silly. I try and give him water with meals but he barely takes any. Problem is when he poos he strains so hard he's really sick and it comes out his nose also, making him really upset. His poo is really solid. Anyone experienced this? Any advice gladly received as it really upsets me to see him so uncomfortable.

  • Sounds like he is constipated to me. Kara is 9 months on Monday and is like this for a while although she doesn't be sick with it. She just strains really hard and they are lumps. The doc gave me stuff yesterday. The HV advised me to overdose on Fruit and veg and soups. Try and get as much liquid in as you can.
