Cow's milk or formula milk or change of milk from one type to another can be the cause. Try diluting it at the ratio of 3:1, that is 3 parts of milk and 1 part of boiled cooled water. Check if baby get some relief. Also try giving boiled cooled water after every solid feed . Plus include foods like prunes, peaches, pears as these are all natural laxatives. Do not start with any medication at this age. Let baby's system itself get adjusted to new and different feeds. Lastly keep baby bit active as this will improve digestion.
