Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Idea of adding tomatoes to infants diet, according to me is not a good decision. Exercising is good for babies. Move the baby’s feet in a circular motion, as if he/she were riding a bicycle. After which fold both their feet and press them gently against the chest. This remedy is also known to work well.Few ounces of fruit juices, rich in fiber such as spinach, peas, pears, plums, peaches, prunes and apricots are also beneficial for this condition.(diluted), twice a day. However, please consult the child’s pediatrician before doing so.Hope this helps your baby.
