Formula fed baby?

My baby went poops and it was the normal color of a formula fed baby but it was slightly harder? Like clay like texture but same color and smell as always. He gets Enfamil soy formula and his poops were looking okay just yesterday so idk what's happened today? He did throw up once yesterday from overfeeding but not sure if that would have anything to do with it. I see my pediatrician tomorrow but would this be cause to call her today? He didn't cry or anything when pooping just his normal grunts.

    Bowel movements aren't always the same texture.  Soy does tend to be constipating, but if his stools aren't rock hard and he has no trouble passing them, it's not constipation and nothing to worry about.

    (I trust there is some medical reason he is on soy?)
