is squash, carrots, banana and sweet potatoe a good source of fiber, my 5 month old baby was been constipated since he started eating solid foods

These are appropriate pureed vegetables to offer your baby beginning at 5-6 months. In addition to fiber, fluid is important in preventing constipation. Your baby still needs to be drinking his recommended amount of breast milk or formula, and offered 1-2oz of water during the day. It would be best to check with your health care provider about the constipation.
