Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day
There is definitely no cause to be worried about consistency of stools as long as baby is accepting feeds well and sleeping for 1 - 2 hours after every feeds. I would suggest you to apply Zinc oxide paste for diaper rash.
In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
Wishing you happy and healthy life
