Infant frequently passing watery stools. Appetite, weight gain good, passing flatulence, probiotics not helping. Solution?

hi, my neonate, who is 35 days old is passing watery loose stools 20-30 times a day, but of little quantity. His apatite is good and maintaining urine output about 10-15 times a day. His wait gain is also good. He s passing flatus frequently, and seems to be in difficulty just before passing stools or flatus. It is not even getting better with Probiotics. Please give advise.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Feb 2013
Frequent passage of little bit loose stools is common around this age and nothing to worry if your baby is exclusively breastfeed as the urine output and weight gain and activity is good. Because of gastrocolic reflex infants pass stool whenever they take feeds and as age increases the frequency of stool decreases. For flatulence you burp the child after each feeding and you can give neopeptine drops orally after consulting your Pediatrician.
