Pediatrician 's  Response
I think the following facts can help you
1.It is normal for infants to pass 7-8 stools per day after feeding
due to gastrocolic reflux,there is nothing to worry if quantity is
not large and no signs of dehydration.
2.Weaning should be started after 6 months of age,it is better to
reduce milk feeding and increase food in the diet of baby.
3.Frequency of motions can be decreased by reducing milk and
introducing more food like rice water ,cerelac ,daal ka paani
and suji.
wishing good health for your baby
