sry about that, my internet is acting weird :(
i wasnt able to reply soon, have alot of guests around and bday preps n all..neways,
ajwain water is strong for babies lil bellies ! so dont do that,,,listen to mom first :)
at 5th month, i would not recommend you to start solids for the reason that its better after 6months or on 6thmonth onwards. however, many start solids as early as 4th month esp when their milk supply goes down and its advisable to introduce baby with food than giving formula for another 2months as the intake of formula is pretty much high until 6mnths.
however, if you still want to start, start with rice cereal,one fruit & one vegie slwly. rememberr to give good water as babies get constipated when introduced solids. one of the reason in your case i want you to start solids at 6th month, is coz your baby is showing constipation without solids.let your baby apetite be mature enough to handle solids.
now, since your baby has shown the prob of gas & constipation, and considering that he is on bm only right now, there is some food that is making him do so.. how often does he poop ! the reason being at 5thmonth, without solids, babies bowel movements should be sometimes 3-4 times a day with medium or abit thin consistency of stools.
what is your staple regular diet, do explain,,it might helpme catch the thing that is bothering your baby.
you drink alot of water, juices esp drink prune juice mixed with other juice, so that it helps baby passing regular bowels.
also,if you are eating some strong foods like wheat only,barley only,potatoes,or any such foods it might cause gas or constipation. have buttermilk in your diet,it cools body, and improves your apetite,and keeps your body pass regular bowels. if you or your dh or someone in family is having a severe prob of constipation or gas, there is 50% chances that your baby is showing the carryon heritage.
also, giving gripe water once in 2days, abit less than recommended is more than enough for 5months old without solids.
also, continue massage of ILOVEYOU stroke, chck in one of my mesages about how to do it,,it relieve babies alot.
keep your baby activity level high, at 5months, if your baby is able to rollover, make him do that prety much often. alsomake sure you dont do it when she had just done with her feeds. keep a toy in front of her legs and let her kick that & enjoy it.
it will also help make his legs exercise.
at 5month you can introduce water,,so give her atleast 1-2ozof water in later afternoons.
hope this helps,let me know if her condition improves, or rather i would suggest you to consult another dr, nothing wrong in that ! sometimes a diff hand in medicine is helpful :)
good luck,
Hetal

Hi Hetal.
Thnx for ur kind mesg.
Beofore ur mesg i hav started semisolids for my baby from past 5 days.apple purees it contains apples,peaches.and i gave carret juice purely.but she got red rashes on her face.then stoped that juice.actually i have given only juice 2sppons.at that moment i don't know that v shouldn't give like that.yeseterday i mix with 4spoons water for 1spoon juice.but she got red marks at her side cheek.so i want to stop the juice.actually iam unable to get enough bm for her.thats why i prefered semisolids.
i am giving water at her 3rd month only.but i read that bm contains the water so there is no need of water.if v give give water then it goes to the disease(i forgot that dicease name).Is it?ofcourse i give her water here this is summer.
coming to my diet i take 2times rice with vegetable currys(often egg curry,chicken),1 chapathi.2glasses of milk .at morning i take black bread with milk(i was told by black bread increases the BM).i take 1cup of carret juice.i glass of apple juice.Indeed i don't like eating fruits thats why i grind the apples in the mixy,then there is no chance of lossing peach.Am i right??????
and i drink 2to 3 ltrs of water.1glass of buttermilk.
Thisis my diet.
cooming poop!she goes once in 3days.but it is not much hard,its just thick liquid.i and my hubby goes daily.v don't hav constipation prob.but v hav the prob of gas when v eat dal.she express the gas very bad smelling.
here is anether prob is that once v regester with 1 Dr then v cannot go to the anether Dr.They won't see.In Swiss v can't find anything better.iam depressed.but v r in helpless situation.
after saw ur mesg abt Prunes also i didn't get prunes and plums.
here i can find raisens.if u want i can try with those to getrid of constipation for her.iam giving masg to her with ur past mesgs.but there is no use.
Indeed she is very active.she started crawling and rolling at 3rd month only.she kicks her dads hands and pillow etc.she smiles alot.but if she cries all of a sudden mostly at night times.iam frustating .
wat i have to do?
plz Hetal do something for me (advice).
Anyway thnx for ur pateince to read this long mesg.
Can i call u as DIDI?
Iam waiting for ur reply.
my sweet kiss to Niraja.
Bye.Tc.

hi,thanx.
what all you have introduced so far..i need to know in order to see whats causing constipation & gas,,is she on bf or formula,,,also wat all does she eat,,,
and the other reason is tthat i can let you know about all foods that she can eat and still remain free from gas and constipation,,
hwever,mild constipation or gass is ok for babies to have at 5months with solids..after 6months, is the right time,,and babies have been comfortable eating all the foods without gas or constipation..
