How do I get my son to relax? He's perfectly healthy, but pinches so hard that he cant go # 2 on his own

We know that he doesn't have Hirschsprung disease, and he's a great eater. He's not constipated, and he doesn't have reflux. Don't know what to do to teach him to relax down there. He's only 5 1/2 months old, and all he does all day is push and pinch trying to relieve the discomfort of being full.

  • well, to be honest, I feel like I've tried everything! warm baths, showers, stimulation...But nothing seems to work! I feel like ripping that muscle out! How can he pinch SOOOO tight that it just WON'T come out?
