6 month old refusing food and constipated


My 6 month old refuses to eat baby cereal, soft porridge &  purity but loves her milk. I started her on NAN 2 this week and she is constipated, she tries but she is tearing (I searched previous posts and i noticed that your advise is to change the formula) I will start her on Lactogen2,but how do i deal with her refusal to eat.?

Your advise is appreciated...

You are welcome.You did the correct thing by starting your baby on Lactogen 2 now. Go slowly with the introduction of solids and start off with a rice cereal twice a day. Gradually introduce other foods such as apple or pear and then vegetables.Babies love butternut and pumpkin.
