I would try to give him a lot more water during the day, not only will it increase his peeing, but it will help soften his poop too. You could also try puting just A FEW DROPS of Karo syrup in something like a drink or oatmeal...this is a natural laxative and works wonders!! I know its hard to see your little guy in pain, but you have to remember to try to not get upset because he feels it when you do and that will keep him calm and might help relax the bowls a little. Good luck...hope it starts to work out for him and you!!

Try fruit juice and adding more fiber to his diet.

My daughter had same problem at that age. Pediatrician said to use Karo syrup in juice or water and it worked wonders! Definitely ask yours first.

How old is he? Had the same problem with my first son, I found out the milk I was giving him had to much iron. I gave him the Karo syrup ang change to no iron milk.

 I know we went through this with Amanda at the same age, we gave her karo syrup and high fiber diet she was just fine. We also had to change her formula to much iron..
