It is normal, nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX I'am Dr Suresh MD (paediatrics), I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.

It is normal for babies to be little fussy or cry before passing urine and stool and also while passing gas. In case of urine and stool it is due to urge pressure that causes some discomfort. Gas collection also causes discomfort so baby may cry or what we commonly call take more angdai (yawning). So there is nothing to worry, it is all normal.

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions

Take care.
