Brief Answer:
No need to worry, it's normal for this age

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query and do understand your concern.
Change in consistency and frequency of stool is normal for this age. Baby may pass 4-6 times stool once a day or once in 4-5 days.Also the consistency may vary. Due to gastrocolic reflex baby may pass stool immediately after feed which is also normal.
I won't get worried if baby is otherwise active, feeding well, passing urine 4-5 times a day and there is no blood in stool.
If you are noticing frequent vomiting, abdominal fullness, frequent watery stool with excessive irritability or letharginess, please consult your pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Regards
