Could be normal: Babies use their breathing muscle to help generate the pressure needed to poop. They don't sit upright or have developed abdominal wall muscles. If they fuss & cringe as part of it I don't assume they are in pain. If the kid is growing and having playful moments otherwise I would ignore it.
