Thanks for posting the query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The yellow liquid stool is the transitional stool which is a normal thing. As long as the baby passes urine adequately, no need to worry thinking the liquid yellow stool is diarrhea.

BCG and Polio drops has got nothing to do with these.

Just tell her mother to continue - exclusive breastfeeding.

I hope that answers your questions.
