Watery stools: We could use more information on what you are feeding your infant. If he is breast fed watery stools may be normal, otherwise watery stools usually indicate a viral gastroenteritis and he should be placed on a bland diet.

I agree we need more information such as how many stools in one day and whether there is a fever or associated vomiting/cold symptoms/rash.
