Is my 6 month old constipated even though he's breastfed?

He's been on solids since 4 months but his poop has been hard and he strains when he goes. It seems like I'm not making as much milk anymore either. That worries me because I really wanted to give him breast milk until he's about 2-3 years old. Is there anything I can do?

take a look at what solids you are feeding him, baby's systems are sensitive when trying new foods. your breastmilk will help but if you aren't producing a lot than give him some baby prune juice to see if that relives it a little. if not you can always consult your pediatrician and let him know what your baby is eating on a daily basis. good luck.
