Dam Buster spread

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

How much of each ingredient did you use? I did a cup of lentils, 2 prunes, and a potato, and he had a bunch yesterday and then some today and still nothing! We're approaching day five...

I just noticed this thread was started in 2007! Wow.

Well, I made this yesterday to try to unblock Mr T. I made it with a sweet potato, a cup of lentils and 3/4 prunes. Little man loved it and I was worried he'd eat too much! No reaction until this afternoon though so maybe he could have had more!

I tried it myself and it was pretty good. Thanks!

Has anyone had this not work?

We're on at least day 4 or 5. I cannot remember when the last one was exactly. Maybe I didn't use enough lentils? I only put in a handful and they were red ones, plus I really hate prunes, so I never have any. I used dried apricots.
Maybe I should just followed the recipe! But I thought they were fibrous.

Haven't tried this recipe, but dried apricots are supposed to be just as helpful as prunes i think. Are you giving plenty of fluids and avoiding binding things like rice, cheese, bananas, etc.?

TBH, I think the very quick "successes" of this are more coincidence than attributable. We used baby laxatives on occasion. T's dairy intolerance meant he had some really bad episodes of constipation at this age (or a little older) before we cut cow's milk out. (I stopped pumping at 10mo and let him have 2 cow's milk bottles a day and it was pretty quick before he was badly bunged up and we switched to Almond milk, which he still has for drinking.) A little bunged up happens when they first start really digesting food, but hopefully it'll pass soon and painlessly!
