In brief: We don't know

Depends on the intake.
Some infants do not tolerate fats in the diet (milk) and need a rest with pedialyte. Usually breast milk may make the stools runny-but this is of no concern. Sometimes the lactose (sugar) in the milk may not be tolerated and the infant needs a change of formula so that the GI tract can build up digestive enzymes. If this condition continues more than 3 days-please visit dr.
