My baby is 6 days old and he is suffering from loose motion since today.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Basically, if it is watery loose motion, either it is viral induced or milk intolerance. In a 6-day-old baby, if mother's milk is exclusively given, not to worry about it as it can simulate like a loose motion in breastmilk-fed infants. Only you have to worry when the baby becomes weak, dehydrated and starts vomiting.
