Hi, This is Dr. Surya Prakash
Lack of normal movements of bowel are the major cause for the easy passage of stool.
1. Milk of Magnesia 5 to 10 ml to be given at bed time
2. JS Relax is a natural laxative to be given in the morning every day for 15 days will clear the problem

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
Best diet for the baby is soft well cooked rice, mashed with banana, some jaggery, dals. If the baby hasn't yet been weaned from mother's breast milk, she may continue feeding. You may give green vegetables also in the diet.

Dear Sudhir
Improper feeding, frequent change of milk, not boiling feeding bootle every time usually lead to constipation. Be regular with diet and timings for diet, this problem will be solved. In Ayurveda we use Gulkand for this and Rose water made from pure roses [ not synthetic ] also acts good. If the problem is acute glycerine suppositary is inserted in rectum and baby passes motion in 15 minutes.
Distilled extracts of saunf rose and gauzban mixed in equal quantity called as chawarka bachon wala is given regularly to keep vaat pit kaph in balance.
