BF baby, solid poos - should I be concerned?

DS nearly 6 months, not weaned at all yet. Was mix-fed 50-50 BF/Ff but in last few weeks has dropped all but a 4oz bottle of formula at bedtime, so almost EBF now, weight gain tracking a centile. He has form for infrequent poos that are paste-y consistency, but last couple of days they have been really solid lumps of poo which he has been straining to pass. Normal mustard yellow colour and he seems fine, feeding well. What gives? Everything I have read suggests solid poo isn't normal.

Hopeful bump as he's still straining to pass clay-like balls of poo today sad

Hi sounds Luke constipation, try a little prune juice or oj mixed with water to help him out, I tried it with my little one at bout 5 months old and it helped her go a lot easier! X

Sounds a bit constipated, might be worth phoning HV to see what they suggest?
