I have delivered 9 days back. My son is passing motions around 15-20 times per day. I donot know what is the cause . Iam just giving breast milk, nothing else. There is no chance of him getting infections ince iam not giving any thing else apart from the milk. Is there any other cause for this. Iam taking lot of hygenic measures.
Newborns on breast feeding tend to pass small amounts of golden yellow stool very frequently. They tend to pass stools with flatus. This is very normal as the newborns do not have control over their anal sphincter. Secondly they have what is known as gastro-colic reflex, meaning that they are going to pass stool as soon as milk goes in their stomach.
If your child is passing urine at least 5-6 times in 24 hours then you need not worry.
What is the color of the motion, the infection can be from any side. Do not presume it not to be infection, any thing can be possible. I am alerting you and not warning. Consult your new born specialist

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?
hi, my baby always seems whingey and has now going of all his milk feeds what do you think it could be? he also fell backwards yesterday and worried about whiplash, he slept more than usual last night and woke up not taking his feeds, but he went of them before all this happened. He has also started weaning, maybe he has no need for milk?
my son is 7 weeks old. He has this white pimple on top of his nose for about a week, what could it be, I hope it s not something serious. I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
