Thank you for your query,
Frequent little bit loose stools are normal in newborns and after feed they pass stool due to gastrocolic reflex which is normal in infants.
Frequent urination is a good sign of adequate feeds and proper hydration.
You continue exclusive breastfeeding.
If the loose motions still present you can give lactobacillus probiotic after doctor consultation.
For the diaper rash, clean the area gently, allow it to get dry and apply the diaper rash cream.
Hope I have answered your query.

Thanks for your query.
Relax,it is normal for breast fed baby to pass several motions a day.This is due to increased gastrocolic reflex.
Give exclusive breast can give lactobacillus sachet for 3 to 4 days.
For rashes,keep area dry after changing diaper for some time,gently wipe it and apply rash cream 3 to 4 times a day.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
