Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
Hi I have gone through your complaints. The children will have exaggerated gastro colic reflex which is normal phenomenon.every time after having food they will pass the stool. When they pass we need to attend them as they lead to sore bumps which is due to ammonitis. So frequent checking of their diapers, maintaining their bumpy area dry is an important step. If he is not having any loose stools then there is no need to worry about . Just contact your doctor for that skin treatment.
Thank you. Good day
