Q.

2 week old baby

Good day doctor, my baby is 2 weeks old. Everytime he has a bowel movement he cries and is in obvious pain. It first sound like a wind, and then the rest follows. It is paste like so not sure if he could be constepated or maybe have a blockages. Also, after his 2 am feed he wont settle back to sleep, can i give him some bennetts colic mixture? during the day he is fine and sleeps well.
