Hi Titarosita,


Babies who drink breast milk and formula milk and have soft yellow stools with a frequency of 3-4 times a day are still within normal limits. You don't have to worry. Frequent bowel movements can indeed occur in infants who drink formula milk. This is different from babies who drink breast milk, who generally only defecate once a day or once in a few days.


What you need to worry about is when:

Baby doesn't gain weight
liquid and frequent defecation
accompanied by nausea, vomiting, fever, irritability

Of course it would be better if the baby was only given breast milk until the age of 6 months. Breast milk is believed to have many advantages, including:

Stronger immune system
Kids are smarter
Mother's and baby's weight is more ideal
Stronger bones
Stronger mother-daughter relationship
Reduced risk of cancer for mother

That's the explanation, I hope it can help you.
