Just turned a week, it's my nephew. I breastfed my son and he went frequently but I know that's because breast milk digests faster than formula. My brother is trying to figure out if he needs to switch formulas. He said he was going a lot and it was runny.

My dd was bf as wel but she didnt go except every 2-3 days for bms at this age.   Runny is natural for all babies since their food source is liquid.  Firmer bowel movements wont be until later.  Your brother needs to talk to the baby's doctor to determine if it is a natural thing for runny bowels at this age.  If he is going more than 6 times a day for this he definitely needs to call doctor in case there is a virus present in body.

DS only did a couple times a day. Sometimes only once.

That's what I figured. I'm going to over to babysitt tomorrow and I'll see exactly what's going on. It sucks because my SIL is the hospital and the baby being sick is the last thing my brother needs you know. Hopefully its just the formula because he switched it recently.

Even 6 poopies depends on the kid.  Both our kids had TONS of poops each day.  Freaked me out with our DD, but turns out they are just poopie kids.  Checked in with the Dr., they gained weight, weren't sick, just lots of poo.  Lucky us.
