That really sounds like constipation. I bet hes holding them in because each one is painful. If you have already increased the fiber and prune juice (cut back a little on the dairy) you should put a call in to your doc for suggestions. Also, when my boy gets really stopped up I do little exercises with his legs where I gently bend them up to his chest (in a bicycler type motion) and this seems to help get things moving. Good luck.
