Abdominal pain: It is not uncommon for children to get some gas pain, possibly backed up behind some stool. If the pain resolved after he had the bowel movement, it's probably fine. If it keeps recurring or worsens, he should see his doctor. If there is blood in the stool, or he starts vomiting, call the doctor.
