Loose motion in a 3 month old baby

Patient

Q: My 3 months baby is suffering from loose motion from last 2 weeks.he is passing stool 4 to 5 times a day.Plz suggest

Doctor

A:   Most loose motions in infants are caused by viral infection. As long as the baby is happy and active, feeding properly, it may not be concerning. However, if the green colour of her stools and the habit of passing motions 3 to 5 times a day is different from what she normally has, she needs to be examined by her doctor to rule out any problems.
