Thank you so much for adding the personal touch by asking how is Pahal doing instead of your baby.. it bought a smile on my face.. she is doing ok as motions issue has been in control like Shikha said it could be because of teething, however how she has been facing issues with cold as there is alot of cough accumalated home remedies and nebulizer isnt showing any results hence on allopathy right now.. continous change in climatic conditions in mumbai is adding to the misery, I have been checking all possible blogs on parrntune n trying some remedies.

Hi Michelle! As long as stools are non watery, with no colour change such as greenish, yellowish, frothy, with bloating, cramps, or vomitting or with mucus discharge accompanied with fever it is not a cause of worry. It could be due to change in diet pattern, or increase in no. Of feeds or addition of solid food. These changes in frequency, texture and size are quite normal. If still u feel it needs attention u cud go in for stool test.

So with her sometimes its usually while she is eating something and sometimes a few hours after she eats.. speaking to you guys gives me alot of relief.. will observe her for a day or 2 and if continues will get her checked. Thank you so much guys!!

Hi... as per pediatric... motion 4-5 times in a day absolutely fine... yes it shud nt be immediately after eating food. If child does motion 2hrs after eating... tht is also fine within two hrs food gets digest... recently my son(3. 8yrs) faced same problem. if u see some other problem better to visit doc once.

Dear Michelle, this could be due to some stomach bug. If you dont see a change or she seems ill, loses appetite, then please check with the doctor. My son used to constantly pass motion atleast every 1. 5-2hours from birth and until 6 weeks of age. Even after that, his average is 3 times a day. He is 18 months old now and still poops more than normal. I, too was wondering if this is something to be worried about. What I would suggest is keep her hydrated and check with the doctor just to rule out any kind of stomach bug. Take care.

I read the blog but it dosent answer my question, my daughter dosent feel dehydrated because she consumes alot of water the concern is she dosent pass motions in one go but 5l4 to 5 times a day, not sure if its normal for a 9 month old to pass motions so many times in a day
