Frequent stools: I need to know if the stools are watery, soft or normal because babies have a strong gastrocolic reflex that make them have a small bowl movement after each feeding, if that is the case as long as it is not loose or watery then it is ok especially if he is growing & gaining weight . But if the stool is loose or watery , the baby is not gaining weight then check back with his Dr. Good luck ...Read more
