Depending on the age of your baby, some formula can cause a hard poo and perhaps a change may be in order. It would be something to discuss with your doctor.

For an older baby, if you have started solids, quite often introducing solids can change a baby's stool. I would be sure to keep nursing, if you are breastfeeding, and in a few days or weeks baby's body should adapt to the new solid foods.

If you are concerned, offer prunes as prunes help with regularity and constipation. Be sure to mention any of your concerns with your doctor at your next visit or give them a call.
