Rice cereal and constipation in babies

Add your advice here…
Message length 300 characters recommended

Upon our pediatrician's recommendation, we started Henry with baby oatmeal as his first solid food. She specifically did not want us to start with rice cereal because rice can be binding and can lead to constipation. Since he was also on formula, he was already having bowel movement issues as a result of it.

Now the recommendations may have changed in the last 8 years and some pediatricians might even suggest bypassing baby cereal completely and skipping straight to veggies.
