Ok. Let me guide you regarding this.
It is common for babies to have constipation. But, if the baby is having discomfort due to constipation, he will be irritated and crying mostly.
There can be vomiting frequently.
he is becoming irritated
From your history it seems to me that baby is having difficulties due to constipation.
So, it does not seem suitable to keep waiting for long.

There are certain causes of constipation in children where a treatment needs to be initiated.
Without examining the baby, I would not be able to comment on them.
But still, it can be any of the following.
- A simple constipation
So I would advise you to get him examined and exclude the possibilities.
Hope you are getting my point.
