it is normal as long as the stools are not watery or greenish. Watery stools are those that sink completely into the diaper like urine. Babies on EBF can poo several times daily and sometimes not poo for days.

How sure are youjQuery321026637721580639395_1563825373657? Then just observe her. She will most likely pass it out in her poo. If you notice anything unusual, then you should take her to the hospital.

You didn't state if your baby is on exclusive breastfeeding or not. If your baby is on EBF It's a normal phenomenon It is not Constipation. Just the baby "feeling" movement of gas and stool which they perceive as discomfort. It's not a problem and no need for any treatment or remedy. If your child is given formula, please ensure it is mixed in the right proportion of milk to water as instructed by the manufacturer. Do also give your baby water alongside formula feeds to prevent constipation. However, if the poo comes out hard, please see a paediatrician.

1. You may want to take the child to the hospital for proper examination so as to know whether there's cause to worry or not. 2. Stools with Semi-formed solids like melon are normal stools for babies on EBF. As long as as the stools are not greenish or watery there's no need to worry.

If you had described what you meant by watery it would have helped. However please note that EBF babies can poo up to 12 times in a day as long as the stools are normal. The normal stools for a baby is melon (egunsi like) it may seem watery with little seeds or paste. As long as the stools do not sink into the diaper like urine then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are still worried you may show the poo to your doctor. I hope this helps. Regards

Please note that it is not unusual for babies to strain when they want to poo. Please make sure you prepare the baby's formula in the appropriate proportion specified by the manufacturer. Also, maintain proper hygiene while making the food and feeding the baby and watch what you give the baby. if the mucus persists. kindly see a doctor. The number of times does not matter as long as the stools are normal stools. On the baby's weight: the weight is okay. No cause for alarm. It is expected that baby should double the birth weight at 6months. Continue to feed the baby with a balanced diet
