Baby having a hard time pooping

Hi guys!
i’m a first time mom, and my son is almost 4 months old, he always has a hard time pooping and had a little bit of an anal fissure. Now every time he poops, almost 5 minutes after, he curls up his knees again like he wants to poop again. 
Has anyone else experienced anything like this with their baby?

  • Ugh, that sounds awful. My DD is 3 weeks old and dealing with painful gas which causes her to pull her legs up into her chest and bear down hard. Her pediatrician had us put her on a baby probiotic that's supposed to help her digestion. I would recommend talking to your DS's doctor to get ideas if you haven't already. They're there to help you. Good luck.
