Newborn poop: A 2 month old will have loose stools depending on whether they are breast or bottle fed. Normally yellow loose (looks like mustard or posse cottage cheese) can be normal. Some babies are sensitive to what the mother eats if she is breastfeeding and you can try eliminating dairy etc but i would sto[ formula feeds and try exclusively breast feeding to see if it improves.
