Hello, newborn babies pass motion while they r drinking milk. It’s normal for for newborns. It’s not a digestive problem. Babies tend to lose weight in Frst 2 wks then again they will gain. Don’t worry. Don’t change formula milk. Try giving more of ur milk than formula milk.feed the baby evry 2 nd hrly with burping for 15 -20 min.
Next Steps
Burp the baby even if u don’t hear burping sound.
