    Ladies,

    Rithik is passing stools every 5-6hrs once right when he stepped home... A day since am noticing thin stools(was little thick before).. is there anything to worry about? I checked with my mom & DH and they said not a problem..

    Babies will pass thin stools also? Not too watery and all..

    Babies should have loose stools(soft ones),not thickery one until they start on solids.If he is not straining much for stools,it is perfectly normal and that too as you said it is only 5-6 hrs ,so it is good.

    watery stools is also fine anitha unless he is constantly passing watery stools all the time, then that should be of concern...
    u should only be concerned if theres a lot of mucus in stools, or blood in stools.... etc.. just relax

    if you are breast feeding, the number and type of stools vary day to day... it will be erratic.....

    my seven month old has come into a routine from the past 2 months only....

    pls, be worried if the colour is green everytime...... and also see to that your LO in not dehydrated..... keep feeding....

    anitha, is the color greenish yellow or just green? If it stays green, he may be lactose intolerant and you'd need to cut out dairy from your diet for a few months. talk to your ped. and see what they say.

    btw heartiest congrats to you and dh on rithik's first month birthday ... I am sure you must be very happy! wishing him many more happy birthdays for the future!
