Poo question

It was inevitable that I would have to ask one of these questions, right??!! DS has had issues since he was about 3-4 months. It started about a month after we changed his formula to an anti-reflux one. His poo became very solid, and it was painful for him. We've had him at the doctors several times, and he is taking a stool softner daily, which helps a little but he still has solid poos. We stopped the AR-formula about 2 months ago, and are back on normal formula and he's started on veggies (pureed)....but the poo hasn't changed. For example, him and DD are eating the same veggies (they are twins), and we can see that in DDs nappies, but you can't tell at all from DS. His are still really solid and dark in colour...I'm concerned about the long term use of a stool softner as I don't think this really addresses what the underlying problem may be. A slow bowel? Has anyone had anything similar?
