What to do if baby is passing semi solid yellowish stools and stool test is normal?

Hi, My 5 month old son s stool is semi solid yellowish in color, sometimes liquid and stingy. He poos atleast six times a day with no signs of nappy rashes. He was given econorm, darolac each for about a week with z&d drops and ORS electrobion. Nothing could stop the count or make situation better. Stool test results showed + reducing agent and Dr. suggested to continue breast feeding along with that he prescribed Colistar. The second stool test showed - reducing agent and found NO signs of Organism. Now its almost a month and we couldn t find the real reason for it. He is active, urinating properly and exclusively breast fed. Our ped says clinically he is normal and may be the situation will improve in due course as he is equally puzzled. Kindly help us.
