Last night, I was terrified when my 2 month old started screaming in pain, I went to change his diaper and found a hard stool, and when I cleaned his bottom, there was a bit of blood from passing the stool. He's only been on his formula for about a week, so I don't want to blame the formula for his constipation yet. I started adding a bit of extra water to his bottles to try to prevent it from happening again, but is there anything else I can do to help my constipated 2 month old? Also, I have been putting Vaseline on his bottom to help with the soreness after passing his stool, but is there anything else I can put on him to help with pain when he has another bowel movement? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
