 My son has been having trouble pooping. He is almost 8 months old & breastfeed. He does eat some table food and homemade baby food. Every time he tries pooping, he starts crying like it's hurting him. Is there something I can do or give him that will help him? Thanks!!!

I would try a pedia-lax product we used them for our little girl and they work .or our doctor told us to give her water with corn syrup it sounds weird but it works too

Hold back on the solids for a little while, and then slowly introduce them again once he's feeling better.

 Upping water intake or foods with fibers?

Glycerin suppositories helped relive my daughter from constipation when she was about 14 months old. I had tried water, juice, exercises, diet change, nothing was helping.She went days without having a bowel movement, so I decided to give the those a try after calling ask-a-nurse.

Unless when he actually poops its hard pellet like, it's not true constipation. If he eats any type of cereals, stop those and offer to nurse more often. Fruits and veggies are also good to give him.

If he's truly constipated (like little pellets of poop), then cut back on solids and offer more breastmilk. Breastmilk is a natural laxative.

If they're not pellets, he's not truly constipated. He might just be crying because it's not easier to poop like it was when he was breastfed only, y'know? However, you might want to just cut back on food in general to EASE him into more solid poops.
