Thanks for query,
Usually an infant passes motions 3-4 times a day,
But you observe the child for frequency and amount.
if both are increased then consult your doctor as it may produce dehydration.
give water frequently.
Ok and bye.

For 3 month old baby this is the NORMAL habit.Its not a diarrhoea and no treatment is required.Please remember-AN EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDED BABY CAN PASS STOOL AFTER EACH FOOD.When otherwise normal nothings to worry.
