Q.

CERELAC

A friend of mine is feeding her 4 weeks baby cerelac cereal and she is also on Nan 1. The problem is she has been complaining about her baby girl ' s constipation every day.

I have been explaining to her that it is too early to feed her that cereal but she does not want to listen.

Please Doc. advice on this matter.

Obviously your friend's baby should not be on Cerelac yet. The earliest she should start on this cereal is at 4 months. This little baby should only be on her formula now.
