Hello, My son is 4.5 months old now. He is suffering having loose stool from last 30 days. I visited doctor twice and found out that he is having a stomach infection. The stool report says he is having mucus in stool. He is passing stool 15-20 times a day but in a little quantity. He is gaining weight also and now he is 6.25 kg (birth weight 3.4 kg). Do I need to worry about his loose motions? And eating spicy and non veg food by me is the cause?
