my son is now 1month and 15days these past few weeks my son has been very fussy hes not having any bowel movement 4days straight. he makes weird faces like hes trying to push, and nothing will come out. and when he passes gas it really smells .. is this normal

p.s im 17 and this is my first child, am i just over exaggerating ? (sorry for TMI)

put about a teaspoon of brown sugar into about 15-30mls of luke warm water in a bottle and give it to him. You could also use a syringe to give it to him if you're not using bottles. Helped with both of my kids when they were constipated. If he is on formula it will take time for him to get use to it, it does tend to constipate a little. Other good things to try is a warm bath and give his tummy a message that will help too.

Don't worry both my kids were smelly too they were pretty good at passing wind lol That's fine. My daughter let rip at her first check up it was pretty funny. Doctor says yep well that works well.
