It seems as if our six months old son has difficulties digesting his first lunch mash. We are using mash as it was described in several books:
- carrots mash
- carrots + potato mash
- carrots + lamb meat mash
all sieved with rape oil. He is breastfed for all other meals.
When being breastfed, he usually defecates once or twice per day, but he stopped defecating before when he got sick (peeing/flatulence only for four consecutive days).
With mash, he seems to show the same symptoms as if he was sick and produces excrement (much more viscous) with great difficulty (more crying, more pushing) after days without defecation.
Is it too early for mash for him or does he need to go through it? We've tried it for two weeks now. He continues eating normally (I wonder how that works... :D ).
