My daughter has large bowel movements but her's don't seem to cause her discomfort. Large bowel movements are techinically considered constipation. Take your son to the doctor, he probably needs a stool softener and modifications to his diet.
I would take him to the pediatrician and tell them that he has blood in his poo. They will be able to tell you what is best for him.
