Paediatrician

You need to find out why your baby has these symptoms which suggest either colic or constipation at such a young age. Is your baby being breast fed or formula fed? Caesarean section born babies do not have more colon problems.It would be best to ask your paediatrician or clinic nurse to see your baby and advise you.
