Gassy fussy baby. without bowel movements.

Patient : I have a y 6 week old. He eats just fine, is having normal wet diapers but... He only has a bowel movement every 3 days sometimes 4. When he does go its not hard, its very runny. I am bottle feeding him with similac advance. He is eating 3 to 4 ounces every 3-4 hours. He is gassy and very fussy but is burping and farting. Spitting up a little bit too, sometimes more than others. My question is should I switch his formula, or get something that may help his have more bowel movements. I think this is why he is so fussy but I am a new mom. Please help!! I have also been giving him gas drops.
