  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Stool frequency varies a quite markedly initial few months. Babies can pass 6-7 stools in a day (usually after feeds) or may pass once in a week. Important thing to note is that stool should not be hard or dry pellet like and should not cause any discomfort. As your doctor has prescribed you some enzyme preparation, many also do the same but clinical benefit are not yet documented.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
