Hi,

How frequently she passes stools? If below 8-10 times per day, stools are not blood stained and there is no fever, we need not worry. It is common for infants to have multiple loose stools daily. If no above said features and she is playful and feeding well, this need not be taken as a disease, and no need of antibiotic treatment. Also, all types of E coli grown in stool are not pathogenic. Some are normal inhabitants of bowel.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
