Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The frequency of defecating in infants, which ranges from 1 to 3 times a day, is generally considered normal. This condition can arise due to several factors, for example:
Consumption of additional milk other than breastmilk Just learned about the consistency of new foods (for example thick or solid food) Consumption of excessive instant food or drink Drinking lots, etc. As long as this condition does not occur continuously for weeks, or causes the baby to vomit, abdominal pain, fever, to signs of dehydration or malnutrition, the possibility of this condition is not dangerous and does not require special treatment. You can take the following steps so that the health of your baby's digestive tract is better maintained and the baby does not experience diarrhea:
