My 5 week old boy makes a distinctive cry when he is passing gas or pooping. His face turns red and he looks so uncomfortable and in pain. He usually farts/poops for about 2 minutes of crying and looking as though he is straining and we feel so bad for him. Anyone who has held him asks us if he is okay when he starts making these faces and crys. But as soon as he has passed the gas or finished his buisness he is fine. Even if he was asleep the gas will wake him up to cry, but immediatly after the gas has passed he will stop crying and go back to sleep. Any advice? We have Gas Drops, and we are Breastfeeding with formula supplimentation of no more than one or two bottles a day. Today I bought Gentle Ease for Fussy babies formula for when he is supplimented.

His poop might be big. That is probably bec. of the formula he is in. Why not try changing his formula.

try to feed him with water, it helps in softening up the poop that's the best natural remedy for me... other than that you'd have to ask your pediatrician.

I think your baby indeed has some digestive problem. Take him to a doctor as soon as possible.

Formula is more difficult for babies to digest than breast milk and can cause these symptoms. That being said, if you eat gas producing foods that will transmit to the baby through the breast milk and give the baby gas. You have to be very careful about what you eat for this reason.
