Hi Grace,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Babies aged 1 to 3 months do often still have unstable bowel movements, it can be too frequent, but it can also be too infrequent. Babies who defecate very frequently (more than 3 times a day, come out every time they urinate) accompanied by frequent passing of gas can be a physiological condition. This can happen because the baby's digestive tract is still very sensitive in digesting the components of breast milk which vary according to the food and drink that the mother consumes. In infants who are given additional milk (such as formula milk), the baby may also have more frequent bowel movements due to improper feeding of formula milk.

If the pattern of frequent bowel movements appear only for 1 to 2 days, with a reasonable intensity (not more than 5 times a day), and not accompanied by other complaints, such as colic, vomiting, hard stomach, fever, dehydration, and so on, most likely the condition your baby is experiencing is not dangerous.

However, if the complaint has appeared for days or is accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, it is safer if you check your baby directly to a doctor or pediatrician. It is feared that the condition occurs due to other causes, such as poisoning, intolerance, digestive infections, malabsorption, food allergies, and so on. It could also be that babies experience diarrhea due to improper drug consumption, colitis, or certain electrolyte balance disorders. With a direct doctor's examination, generally a potentially dangerous condition can be identified as well as given proper treatment. In conditions that are suspected of being severe, further examinations, such as blood tests, feces, ultrasound, etc. can also be done by doctors.

In the meantime, you should breastfeed your baby ONLY to maintain a healthy digestive tract. Before breastfeeding, make it a habit to first clean your breasts with a towel soaked in clean water and wash your hands. If you are giving your baby expressed breast milk, make sure you store it in the proper storage method. Also give your breast milk with clean media. Avoid the baby from contact with dirty objects or other substances that are prone to being swallowed into the digestive tract. Lastly, avoid giving medications carelessly to babies without a doctor's prescription.

Hope it helps ..
