Maybe look for one without Rice for a while as that doesn't help it binds them,also try adding some water maybe he's not drinking enough ?

Rice constipates!! You could add coconut oil, olive oil, salmon oil, cod liver oil to his food. I would definitely get him off the rice for a while.

Instead of pumpkin you can also use yam. We have canned available everywhere but we buy both organic and pure in baby food jars.
