Dyschezia is usually a temporary problem that occurs when a baby is learning how to pass stools. Dyschezia can only be daignosed when the baby's stools are normal and soft and are not hard.If your baby's stools are quite hard then you should change her formula to Lactogen1. If they are normal then this problem will pass over by itself after a week or so.
