Thank you for your query.

It is good that you have stopped formula feeding and reverted back to breast feeding. It is not uncommon for babies to pass a motion after every breast feed and you should not worry as long as he is passing urine frequently. However to be on the safer side it is advisable to get a stool routine examination done to exclude any infection.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
