What to do if your 9 month old infant is passing very hard stool

If your 9 month old is having very hard stool then they are not getting enough fluids. I recommend giving your baby a sippy cup or bottle of water. If they were eating solids try to make sure they are not getting too much banana or other constipating foods. Many babies have issues with constipation when they are learning to eat and digest real foods. If water doesn't help you can try prune juice or apple juice.
