4 to 5 times stool per day normal
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear Mr XXXXXXX
The best guide to adequacy of feeds are
1. Weight gain as per expected growth charts
2. Sleeps for at least 2 hours after feeds.
Using bottle feeding is not good. As it's difficult to maintain hygeine of the bottles and habit of bottle feeding is difficult to break.
It will be preferable to use home based foods and use wati and spoon for feeding in place of bottle.
It's quite common for babies to pass stools 4 to 5 times . They usually pass stools after every gm feeds due to gastro-colic
The child should be three times its birth weight
by 1 year if age and should be able to eat everything what is normally consumed by adults (off course it should be less spicy and be softer).
Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
