Infant-hard stool: Is your baby being breast fed or is the baby on formula. If on formula, contact your doctor about changing the formula to help with the problem.

Also make sure the baby is drinking water (filtered) for hydration.

It is abnormal: ; week old infant should not have hard stools. He is probably formula fed. The solution is to try a different formula or give the infant some water or diluted juice 2-4 oz per day.
