hello! you need not worry about the soft stool as its a common side effect associated with antibiotics specially with amoxycillin. if its not causing much problems to ur child u can continue it safely. there is nothing to worry about the exomphalus as ur child is not complaining of abdominal pain, distention of abdomen or vomiting. be vigilant of these signs and consult your surgeon if required.
