Dear Doctor,

My boy now is 7months and 7kg at the moment. I found out this week, my boy having hard time to POO POO, he even POO POO 3 days once and the texture a bit solid and hard but then color still remain mustard yellow and I also found out recently he less overnight PEE.

Usually his diaper will be full overnight, but these 2 days I found out is dry/less and his intake of milk still normal at 6oz per feeding.

He started eating puree. I home made puree for him, ingredient include: Soft brown rice, black eye bean, cabbage, broccoli, sweet potato and carrot.

Please advise whether I should stop the puree or what can I do.

Dear Theng

When a baby is started on weaning diet, the stool may become more solid but this should not lead to constipation. Normal bowel habit may vary from 3 times a day to once in 3 days of normal stool for an infant.

The reduced urine output may indicate that your baby may not be drinking enough (either milk or other fluid) which is quite common among babies who are started on weaning diet. You should continue serving him the puree as fibre in the weaning diet may help his bowel opening. You may offer him more fluid intake too.
