What can I give my 6 month old to stop him from getting constipated? I've tried juices and fruits and nothing helps. His stool is really stiff and dry

In brief: Constipation

At 6 mos of age you should introduce solid foods, give a lot of fruits , Vegetables, juices even prune juice , water it down for him, not too much apple nor bananas, make sure his pediatrician is aware of this problem particularly if he had it since birth , he might need to do some tests to R/ O Hurshsprung disease.
Good luck.
