Q.

tea

Hi dr, my son is eating solids and loving it. He was constipated due to the solids but I was able to keep him comfortable. With in a day his stomach is now very loose and explosive. He also seems to be a bit uncomfortable particulary when eating or drinking formula. He is not taking anything for constipation. Could he still be constipated and this being a side effect? Also, can rooibos tea cause constipation and cramps?

It seems that your baby son cannot tolerate one of the solids that you are giving him. It may be the cereal. He should be on a rice cereal. If he is eating fruit give him apple only.
