1 month old with cramps

my 1 month old son is experiencing sever stomach cramps. it appears that this happens when he is constipated. Once he passes stool then he seems to be ok. He is only on breast milk. is he suffering from constipation? What can i use to solve his problem? He does not cry when this happens but he moans with pain.

Your baby appears to be having colic which is a very common problem at this age.He is very unlikely to be constipated if he is being breast fed. Try one of the colic treatments such as Bennets colic remedy or speak to your pharmacist.
