There are two possibilities here. Firstly it is possible that your baby is constipated and the second possibility is early colic.If your baby is constipated and is on a formula feed you may need to change the feed to another brand.If constipation is not a problem then you should consider colic as the most likely cause of your baby's discomfort.
