I really appreciate your concern for the baby let me tell you that in this age group treating diarrhea with some medicine is not advisable if this does not have any pathology number of passing of stool 4 to 5 in day would be normal, hydration is the matter and this should watched, otherwise no need to worry about this, hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.
