General Surgeon 's  Response
Please start her on Syrup Neutrolin B 0.5ml three times a day, its a probiotic which will help in eradicating infection, Continue it for 4-5days.
Start baby on Syrup Wallamcin(Colistin Sulfate). 0.5ml twice daily for 3 days
it will definately help, also most of children in this age group pass stools after every feeds( Gastro colic Reflux which is normal feature). So if you consider that baby is feed 10 times per day , so stool frequency of 10 times per day is ok. Its not only the frequency of passing stoole but also the quantity of stoole which is more important in labelling its normal or abnormally.
So if the baby passes stools after every feeds in small quantity and sleeps for 2 hours after every feed then there is nothing to worry as its perfectly normal.
You should be worried when the following features are present
Excessive Crying
Dryness of tongue
Dryness of eye( suggestive of severe dehydration)
Does not sleep adequately.
Blood in stool.

Right now try the above medications and continue breat feeding, if any of the above warning symptoms are present then consult your Paediatrician.
