Diarrhea: I would keep her on a full diet unless she vomiting. Interestingly enough apple sauce can mate diarrhea worse. There are limitations to the BRAT diet and it is not used routinely anymore. Any vomiting should be treated with small amounts of Pedialye and potentially IV fluids for dehydration concerns. All the best.

Baby poop: yes not abnormal. The shape and color will continually change based on what you are feeding him. Good luck
