Weaning My 6 Month Old

My One Year Old Baby Girl Is in 10Th Percentile for Her Weight. Any Advice?

Continuously Constipated 10 Month Old

My little girl Lucy has been constipated for the last month. It was right at the time that she started to eat solids on a regular basis, so I know that is the culprit.

I have looked up lots of information and we are avoiding constipators like bananans, white flour, rice ceral, etc. I am also making sure Lucy is exercising enough. Nothing is helping and I am wondering if I should back off the solid...
