Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Increased frequency of bowel movements in infants and children, can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Milk allergies or other foods
Bacterial or viral infections
Just changed milk or food
Which actually, the most dangerous of these conditions is the potential for dehydration in children. A child who experiences liquid and frequent bowel movements, can become weak and lack of fluids in the body. This is marked by the child is no longer active, looks thirsty, not excited and cheerful, her eyes are cowardly, her skin returns slowly when pinched, her lips are dry, her urine rarely comes out and when crying, tears do not come out. But in the case of your child, in the absence of these characteristics and the amount of stool that comes out is also small, the condition should not be dangerous.
Even so, because this has been going on for days you should now check your child's condition at the pediatrician, for further examination. With a direct examination through a history, physical examination and support if necessary, can be known trends that have your child, and the best treatment.
Meanwhile there is no need to worry too much, keep on breastfeeding and meeting their daily needs, keep themselves clean and their environment and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
