Hi Doctor,

My boy is having watery poo since Wednesday.
From Wednesday until Thursday 8am, already poo watery poo for 5 times.

The volume of poo is normal and also mustard in color.

He has been fully breast feeding. Due to my low milk volume and his refusal to drink formula, I had obtained some donated breast milk from other mummy. Is this the cause of my boy’s watery poo?

And he is active and normal

Please advise.

Dear Theng Theng,

You did not mention your baby’s age and his usual bowel habit. Therefore it will be difficult for me to determine whether this is normal bowel opening or diarrhoea. If your baby is less than a month old, this could be normal if the stool is not watery and your baby is well and active.

Thank you.

Best regards,
