Get him examined by your Pediatrician, please donot start your own dietary therapy. Your doctor will give you simple formulations like Milk of Megnesia or CREMAFIN which can be given to your infant.

The more you will delay the more gas will be blocked due to impaction stool in colon. so in my opinion you should take him to ER ASAP. He is just 8 months infants so can not tell how much pain he is feling. so the defecation is really required at this time. so dont delay
Thank you
