Child passes frequent motions appears watery. Stool routine okk, mucus present, fever. Treatment and opinion?

Hello Doctors.... My 8 month old son passes motion 4-6 times in a day. From 4th month onwards he used to pass plenty of times inspite of just giving breastmilk . However, between the 3rd and 4th month we used to give him dried banana powder boiled in water. We stopped after a month on doctor s advice. We resumed solid food from six month onwards. The stools are formed after every feed. Stools that occur a few hours after a feed usually appears watery with a little solid. Our Doctor says that everything in the stool routine and reducing substance tests look ok. A little mucus is present usually in his stools. Our doctor however said that its ok. He seems to be quite normal. playing about as usual. Recently he got a fever that lasted for one and half days. He gets colds quite often. he weighs 8kilos and 700 gms. His birth weight was 3.62 kilos.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

One thing that is reassuring me in your kid is his weight gain. He is gaining weight normally.

Another thing that is reassuring me is your statement that he is playing normally.

Most of the things that are described by you are normal for that age.

a infant normally tends to pass stool after every feed.

Hope this helps.
Take care
