Hello , As infants move from a liquid to a predominantly solid diet their stools can become harder and uncomfortable to pass. Continue breast feeding ,don't give hard food for sometime, give smashed easily digestible foods . Baby should drink more water . Mild stool laxative may help . But you should take pediatrician advice before starting it.
