I was very worried when our son passed yellow mustard colored stools with a consistency of water about 3 times in 2 hours. Thank god this happened while in the hospital. I got one of the nurses and she said this was perfectly normal and infact healthy for the baby. If the stools are dark and solid, then it is a cause of concern. If your newborn excretes a lot, then it is a good sign he is getting good feeds and his intake is healthy. Only if he passes motion more than 20 times in a day, then you need to rush to the doctor for dysentery.

Urinating 6-7 times a day is good again though my lil one has his tank open when he is awake and I can very well win any nappy changing competition now.
