Is it normal for my fully breast fed baby to pass motion every hour? Sometimes quite a large amount. Occasionally she’s having green stool.

Otherwise she’s tolerating feeding well.

Thanks

Hi wkingdom

Congratulations on your new baby.

Yes, it’s normal for newborn babies to pass stools often during or after a feed…. which can be 1 - 2 hours apart

The only concern will be the development of some rashes at nappy area.

Please use nappy rash cream frequently to prevent nappy rashes.

Hope this helps


Warm regards
