When she was younger and I was less experienced about managing constipation, Myla Rae has had some horrifically hard poops to pass... the kind that scared me. Thankfully, we have never had a bleed or tear! Though... I've heard that is not uncommon as quite a few of my friend's have had their young babies passing such hard, dry stools that you see a little blood or even slight tears (fissures) in the delicate skin near the opening of the baby's anus (OMG so heartpain!). If that happens to your baby, you can apply some aloe vera lotion to the area to help it heal. And keep the area as clean and dry as possible.
