Baby is passing hard poop
My daughter is 8 months old and she is passing hard stools... I give her water n semi solid food like mashed fruits n khichdi,  but still she puts a lot of pressure n finds difficult to pass stool... Is there any medicine for this?  Should I include or exclude any specific food?
