welcome to health caremagic
loose stools or diarrhoea is only when ur child has 3 or more foulsmelling looe stools associated with blood or mucous
in ur childs case it sounds normal as 4 mnths old children usually have soft stools.also only two times
make sure ur child drinks lots of water and is well hydrated
thank u
