My 9 months old didnt poop in 7 days. Til last week I was working more cause my parents were babysitting and he was fed more solids (stage 3 meats, pureed fruits and veggies). this past week i spent more time with him so he was breastfed more. Sometimes i see that he wants to poop but gave up. should I be worried? Thank you

At the risk of sounding like a tape loop -
Either give him a baby mini-enema (Fleet Pedialax make one - liquid glycerin, it used to be called Babylax, they've changed the recommendations but it's the same thing and as safe as it ever was), or do it yourself with a turkey baster and some soapy-water solution! These are the only ways to empty his bowels thoroughly, which he so badly needs after 7 days
