Baby making funny sounds

Hi Doc, he is over 2 wks and makes sounds like he wants to pass stool, he is not constipated because he goes about 4 times a day.When making the sounds he streches the whole body and sometimes curls it..making it stiff.Should i be worried?

It is difficult to be sure about what is causing your baby to make these sounds without being able to see him.He may be having a bit of colic. Another possibility is reflux. Is he bringing up small amounts of milk after every feed? I would not like to suggest any treatment in a newborn without having a definite diagnosis. I suggest that you ask your paediatrican to see your baby.
