First try warm prune juice. If that doesn't help, try an OTC laxative like Miralax. If that still doesn't help still, see a doctor.

Dr. Eric Kaplan answered:

Can Pepto bismol cause me to have black stools as well as constipation?

Yes, yes

Avoid_constipation
Bismuth, the main ingredient in Pepto Bismol, will turn the stools black transiently and may lead to temporary constipation. Ifr the black stools continue days after use of Pepto, you need to see a GI doctor to be evaluated for an upper GI source of bleeding from your stomach which will also cause the stools to be black

What can you do to treat hard stool without constipation?

Hard pelletized stoo

Feces
is only caused by not drinking enough fluids and those fluids should be caffeine free/alcohol free fluids. You need 80-100 oz per day, more if you exercise, fly in planes, or take meds that contribute to constipation. Hard stool IS constipation.

My 4 mth old formula fed baby has small, hard stools. She cries and seems to be in pain when passing them. Is this constipation? What can I do?

Constipation

Avoid_constipation
Yes this is the most likely cause. I would recommend adding some more water to formula meals, increased water is the simplest way to help relieve constipation. Always keep an eye out for more serious conditions and talk to your doctor if your baby's appetite decreases or if there is vomiting, fever or other concerning symptoms.
