Brief Answer:
It is a normal thing

Detailed Answer:
hi,
Welcome to HCM.
I have read your question in detail and i know that you are very concerned about your child but don't worry about it.

A baby of 1 month may pass stools 5 to 6 times a day or may pass stool once in 5 days, both these things are normal.
If a child is passing urine 6 times in a day, then he is getting adequate feed and there is no dehydration.
In my opinion, you should take enterogermina ampule (claustridium bacilli) once a day for 3 days to increase gut immunity.
If child is feeding well, passing urine normally, sleeping well and its active, then you don't have to worry about this.

I hope that this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
