My 5 month old is pooping like 6 times a day. I thought it was diarrhea but its not very watery. She goes every time she drinks a bottle and its just a very tiny amount and looks a little mucusy. She has no other sympoms.

Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. If it is normal in consistency and is not watery there is nothing to worry. I suggest you to : -give probiotic for 2to 3days. -ensure proper sterlisation of feeding bottle. -watch her activity/feeding/urine output. In case symptoms persist get her evaluated by pediatrician for further management. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have any further question I would be glad to help.
