  • he could have gas on his belly if his belly is hard then he has gas on it or he needs to poop lol but its ok to let him cry as long as there is nothing wrong with him

  • If he seems ok, and just does it for a min or two, maybe he is just expiermenting. Realizing that he can control the noise?

  • When my daughter was a newborn, she would have these thunderous poops, which I affectionately call sh*tsplosions . . . lol . . and it would startle her and she would scream and squeal like that. They're still figuring how to work their bodies and it can sometimes be uncomfortable. Mylicon works great if it is gas.
