Pediatrician Dr. Santosh Kondekar's  Response
some syrups can also cause loose stools, please check with doctor. nose secretions passed in stool may also can make motions loose. Quality of loose stools helps doctors decide regarding reason for motion, like say infection etc. Get the stool tested for routine microscopy and cultureand reply back.

hi, antibiotics some times cause loose motions due to change in intestinal flora.
please discuss with your doctor .
for the time being you can start lactobacillus preparation as supplement
hope your baby be all right soon
