Ashley has the same problem and she’s pretty much had it forever (she’s 9 months old now). It got much worse when we started with the rice cereal. The only way I “help” her is by feeding her prunes. That seems to do the trick every time…she usually has a major blow out w/in hours . Not sure that’s so great for her system, but I don’t know what else to do.
