7 weeks old baby pooping 4 times a day
Hi All, My baby is 7 weeks old. Her birth weight was 3.7 kg and now she is weighing around 4.8 Kg. Since her birth we used to give formula milk along with breast milk to our baby. For last 2 weeks we were trying to cut down the formula (like once or twice a day) and we started giving her most of breast milk. Initially after this shift she started pooping once in two days or daily once, but since last 1 week we noticed she started pooping 3-4 times a day. Poop consistency is yellowish and more of liquidise, also her demand for breast milk has also increased recently . Is there anything we need to worry about this pooping 3-4 times a day?

Hi Looks completely normal..Weight gain also looks adequate.. if adequate with breast milk please continue breast feeding .Even 15 stools a day of a new born baby we consider normal due to Gastrocolic reflex..Make sure the baby is fed as per demand..
Next Steps
Feed as per demand as the baby grows..
Health Tips
Observe for signs of dehydration  like dull activity or fever or decreased urine output..the time for pediatrician visit if dehydrated..
