stomach cramps

our baby boy is only a month &  2 weeks old and for the past few days he' s been struggling to pass faeces and he struggles to push everytime he tries to relieve himself. he also farts like an old person when he pushes, could there be something wrong with his tummy?

yesterday his faeces looked like he had something heavy to eat because it looked very rough.
what can we give him?

I take it that you are not breastfeeding your baby. The formula he is on is probably causing him to be constipated. Try him on another formula such as Lactogen1

Breastmilk is best if you not breastfeeding give him S26 GOLD I had the same problem and this milk is good its expensive but worth it
u can also throw some Telament T drops in the milk its for cramps and its safe
my babies are now 6 months Thank God and dont suffer from this anymore
