Thanks for your question! Our Healthcare Expert will be answering some questions every week but in the meantime, here's a little tip from our Careline: Generally, babies who pass motion frequently even after each feeding is considered normal. If your baby is acting her usual self, frequent bowel movements aren't a cause of concern unless there's a sudden change in your baby's bowel consistency and her stools become very watery. If you have started your baby on solids, it may also affect the frequency and type of her bowel movement depending on the choice of food you introduce, such as fiber-rich food. Do monitor your child's diet by keeping a food journal and observe her reaction to the new food you have introduced for at least a week. If your baby has persistent watery bowel movements even after medication, it is recommended that you bring your child to a pediatrician for advice. This could be an indication your baby might be having an infection such as gastroenteritis or is allergic to certain food ingredient.

I would suggest that U bring her to PD for advice. For 8 mths old,she shd be on solids food already. It could be the food that she is taking that's causing the frequent bowel movement? If it is very watery like water, then it is diarrhoea, and thats when lacto fort comes in, or even soy. Even if the child is having diarrhoea, u can still bf.
