My baby who is 2 months old didn't pass stool for 4 days. He is passing foul smelly fart continuously and has been crying all night. Seems like his stomach is upset. He is exclusively breast needed. What to do to help him?

At this age babies may pass stools once in 8 days, this may be normal if abdomen is soft and baby is not vomiting. Burp your baby after each feed.
