She could be, I guess. Have you given her any infant probiotics? It sure helped my son's stomach.
If she is spitting up, it suggests gas in the stomach that the food cannot get past. What kind of burping methods are you using? Have you tried her face down on your lap, head out, and patting her back and then lifting up your legs so she is in an upright position?
I've had to try every position with her! The one that seems to work is when I lay her on my lap with her stomache on my leg an pat. I think it was gas she continued till she bawled her self asleep but I did give her some mommys bliss. She done better today but still bawled. My first did do the same around this time but because she was hungry. I had to get her cereal. I'm afraid to feed this one cereal because she constipates so easy. You think she'll be ok if I mix some of the oatmeal cereal in her food?
At 5 months, it's considered a little early. I don't think cereal is the entire answer if she is hungry, anyway -- milk has protein, which lasts longer in her system, and cereal is all carbo, which takes up plenty of room but lasts less long in her system. So she'll be hungry sooner, if you feed her cereal.
Applesauce and apple juice are often given to stop the runs. You might test to see if the applesauce is actually blocking her up.
Try the probiotics, she might need some new working beasties in her stomach to help her digest.
no the applesauce is the only thing helping her poop I know that. If I don't give her the applesauce she wont poop
