In brief: More Fiber

If your baby is not uncomfortable try increasing the fiber with apples, prunes, leafy vegetables.
Stay away from starchy foods that may make the stools firmer. Increase her fluids. If the baby is uncomfortable glycerin suppository may help to pass a hard stool. If the pain persist then consult your doctor
