    I'd definitely take him to the doctors or ask the health visitor! It's not neccessarily dangerous but its worth checking up on and asking their advice!

    Also, my LO has been constipated, we went to the baby clinic today and the HV suggested a couple of baby massage moves.. the best ones being rubbing baby's belly in a circular motion with some oil and bending their knees up to their belly. Did that and after 2 days of nothing, she exploded afterwards! Might be worth a try.

    Aww poor baby, hope he feels better soon.
    Sophie was mega constipated once and the HV told me to rub around her anus with cotton wool soaked with warm water. And it worked almost straight away!
