Our expert says:
At this stage of your baby's life, he can eat a variety of foods that contain some dietary fibre which will help to combat his constipation. Cooked and pureed dried fruit or prune juice (1 tablespoon/day) should help. You can also give him porridges which contain some fibre. Bananas do not 'build up' but they are a fruit that is not rich in fibre. In general vegetables are richer in fibre than fruits, so make sure that he has a serving of cooked vegetables every day. If this condition, persists then I would recommend that you take him to a Paediatrician for a checkup just to make sure that there is no underlying physical cause for his constipation.
