Stools immediately after food. Why? Stop milk?

My kid is 1 year and 5 months old, weighing 8.48 kgs and lean in nature. He passes stool mostly after he eats his food .... He also likes to eat a lot but no weight gain .... We took a stool test and stool culture and montex test, but everything seems to be normal as adviced by a pediatrician .... the doctor adviced to stop giving milk, because the lactose might create this effect of immediate stool passing after a meal. So we have stopped it now for the past 2 days, but still he is under the same stage ....

Some kids have gastrocolic reflux which causes passage of stool immediately after taking food. Some times deworming help to decrease the problem. And for weight gain try to give more solid foods and add ghee and oil to the child food
