Baby cries during bowel movement. Why is he gassy? Allergy?

My 4 week old baby boy has lately been crying before he pushed to poop, it takes a long time as well and once he passes it is more watery than I remembered before. He also seems very gassy lately. A few weeks ago we switched him to sensitive formula for gas and fussiness which helped a lot. Not sure if this is normal or possibly an allergy . Gripe water does seem to help him poop faster although he still cries ... I can also hear bubbles in his belly and when he poops it s always a loud sharting noise lol . Thanks

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

It seems he is having colic with formation of gas.

Colic can be relieved by holding the child tummy against shoulder of parent in upright position.

Colic aid drops will relieve the pain with colic in prescribed dose.

Neopeptine oral drops can be given for gas problem.

Therefore consult the pediatrician for physical examination and for prescription of medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
