hard stool cure?

well i called the doc today, but with the holiday and all they are out until tuesday. my lil guy (9 weeks old) was trying soooo hard to poop today and once he finally did, they were little hard balls and had a little tiny bit of blood in them. Is there anything safe to give to babies to soften thier stools? THANKS!

  • If you go to your local drug store you can get a glycerol suppository. They're safe! The doc had me give one to my son and he was only a week old
