Other Sx ???: The breast fed baby can have a small watery smear of poo every feeding or a giant crib filler poo every 7-10 days & be normal. If all of babies stools have been a bit watery but baby is feeding well & acting ok, i would just monitor the situation. Formula fed kids seem to firm up sooner than breast.
