hai, in your question u have not mentioned about food habit of the baby, whether he is on breast feed or formula feeds.if the baby is on breast feed and gaining weight adequately no need to worry.if he is on formula feeds check the sugar content of the formula whether lactose or soy based.use lactose free formula and then check for stool reducing substance
