any new food can cause constipation with little ones as their digestive system is still learning how to process solids. green beans sometimes cause gas in little babies, and until the gas is expelled the baby will suffer constipation. Once the gas is released the pain will ease and the beans will pass through no problems. other times the skin on the outside of the beans can be difficult to digest, in this case the body works so hard to digest the beans that it ends up being mildly constipated. Some tips on helping gassy tummies and constipation caused by foods eaten: massage their lower back (this gets the gas out of the intestines, be sure the massage sideways and down, never upwards) very gently massage their tummy (massage in finger print sized circular motions. this helps digestion) give plenty of fluids offer pureed pears for a natural way to beat constipation.

I think it sounds pretty good, that is basically what I have been doing some days, too. Only I use all nuts, I'd get bored of just one kind. Nuts have lots of protein AND just a little carbs, so it seems to me it's pretty balanced. Plus you're having veggies. Sounds about perfect to me! But feel free to ask your doctor about it if you're very concerned. I heard beer is pretty high in calories. Also I read that diet coke is a lot higher in carbonation than regular, and carbonation is actually an enemy of fitness plans... you need plenty of oxygen when you exercise to lose weight, and carbon dioxide is what you're trying to expel.

No green beans aren't your problem, I'd take a look at the type of formula you're using and if it has iron in it then go to no iron. If you're not feeding iron formula or are breast feeding then take a look at the amount of water the baby is taking in via the bottle. Constipation comes from not enough water or too much iron in foods. One thing you can do with the water bottle is take some white Karo syrup, about a TBSP and heat up 8 oz of water, mix well and put into the bottle. Something about Karo syrup and water really helps with constipation and babies love the stuff, very safe too. 1 bottle as needed will get your baby pooping regular again...first make sure your formula doesn't have iron in it though and make sure baby gets water during the day as well.

green beans by themselves don't necessasarily cause constipation since they are not complex carbs. how long has ur infant been on solid foods?? in the beginning, a lot of constipation is normal. just lay baby on his or her back and move their legs in circles like they were riding a bike to help relieve sum of the pressure and help them to go.

Yes my little girl has been constipated since she started solids. I don't know if it's the cereal or what but every time she tries to poop she screams. I took her to the doctor on Thursday and the doctor gave me a prescription for an infant suppository. Also try giving water after feeding and a little bit of prune juice diluted.

Add a vegetarian entree. Swap the cole slaw for a green salad, or corn, or carrots. You don't need the vegetable tray served with dinner. Leave it as an appetizer on the tables, if people won't be sitting down to dinner right away. If you need some time after the ceremony to take photos, then you need a cocktail hour (alcohol is optional - at least serve water, soda, juice, coffee, for FREE) - fruit platter, veggie and dip platter, cheese and cracker platter at least. Maybe some cold cocktail shrimp, and/or hot hors d'oeuvres - pigs in a blanket, mini quiche, stuffed mushrooms, etc. If you don't have a caterer, then you can get these in the frozen foods section and pay someone to heat and serve them. Do you have a cake yet? Serve fresh fruit with it.
