I also give my 7month old daughter carrot puree when she os constipated. Carrot can never be the reason for not passong motion.

Hi Madhavi, carrot contains fibre and fibre helps in bowel movement. I agree with Jaya that you should also feed adequate amount of water to the baby to aid digestion. Also, try feeding very small quantities of any food in the beginning. Gradually start increasing the quantity once the baby's digestive system gets accustomed to it.

Hi.. as far as I know carrot cannot be the reason. When you start with solids you must also give the baby enough water to avoid constipation. Try giving enough water to him and If the problem persists discuss the same with your doc.
