Thanks for your query,
I appreciate your concern.
Relax,it is normal for breast fed babies to pass frequent motions.
Sometimes they pass motion after every feed ,this is due to increased gastro colic reflex.
It will settle of its own,since your baby is active so nothing to worry.
Give lactobaccilus sachet for 3 to 4 days
you should avoid gas forming foods in your diet,take plenty of fluids,take curd.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

Hi Jennifer,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Infants usually upto 7 months of age, they will have the gastrocolic reflex, due to which they pass stool whenever they fed and it is a normal reflex mechanism.
Color also vaties from green to yellow
As she is comfortable, active and not crying nothing to worry.
If there are loose stools you can gice probiotic like lactobacillus after your doctor adives.
And I congratulate for giving exclusive breastfeeding to your baby and continue breastfeeding.
Hope I have answered your query.

its dr vivek
baby who are breast feed used to pass golden colored soft stool
while those on cow milk pass hard stool and yellow colored
some time baby pass green colored stool not to be worried about this
if your baby is gaining weight adequetly not to be worried
go for stool routine microscopy and culture if normal no is required
add papain for your baby that may be help full
