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.

Visit with your doctor to review his diet. Frequently the symptoms you describe are associated with insufficient fiber and not enough water in the diet. Make sure he is getting plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, cereals.
