Brief Answer:
normal results

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The color- yellow- is fine, baby's stool can be this color. Watery stool is also occasionally common in babies but if he or she is having very frequent watery stool, it may indicate that he or she has diarrhea.
Diarrhea is usually due to a viral or bacterial infection of the colon but this is not likely the case here because there are very little PUS cells

Pus cells are found when an infection is present, 0-2 means that they did not find any in the stool sample.
No Red Blood cells (blood), were found. It is normal to have no blood or no pus cells.

Yeast cells --FEW-- if he or she has a slight diaper rash or thrush , both of which are caused by yeast, this would explain the presence of the yeast.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Brief Answer:
they can sometimes stool after each feed

Detailed Answer:
HI

Yes, bowel movements right after a feed can occur. To a parent it almost feels as though the feed is going right through them ( i know i felt that way when mine were babies).

Once he is still energetic as normal, that is good and also still has an appetite (same desire to feed as normal)

If you notice a decrease in activity or feeding or decreased wet pampers or more irritability then this would be concerning

The fact that some of the movements occurred with passing air makes is less worrying

The stool analysis did not show any evidence of infection or blood

im feeling ill today - it has gradually increased throughout the day. I was out to dinner last night -- had a bit of red wine through a long dinner process.. had severe gas throughout the night and experiencing mild diarrhea that is VERY GREEN. symptoms worsen after eating.. I did not feel hung over this morning - but now feel like a truck hit me -- got a good head ache too -- I dont think I drank excessively - moderate.

I was switched from macrobid to keflex for a uti due to heavy diarrhea and nausea. I have been off the macrobid for 48 hours. This morning when I had a bm (still somewhat loose) I saw orange spots in the toilet afterward. I did try to eat a more normal diet yesterday which included chinese orange chicken (I know fried foods aren t the greatest after diarrhea). Does this indicate a problem?
