General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
It is normal for a 4 months baby to pass stools as many times as he has feeding.As long as the baby is comfortable and does not cry or have any sign of dehydration it is fine.If you are still worried you can consult a Paediatrician with the report of stools and he will advise you the further course of treatment if required.
Thanks
