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

Take Care
