My breastfeed son John has cramps before his bowel movements since a new born. He will pull his little legs up to his chest and scream for a second, and this repeats for up to 10 minutes (seems like ten but likely only five or under). After cramps pass he calms down and within 5 minutes will pass the stool(which is liquid not solid). My doctor said this is normal, but no mother I have talked to has experienced this, so to me this is not normal. Any input or suggestion, I do give him "Ovol" as suggested put does not always work. The doctor said this will stop after three months, but he is almost four months.
