Yes this is worying your young baby should not be having watery stools.He may be starting with a gastro infection.Watch him carefully and if his diarrhoea worsens or if he starts vomiting he should be seen by a doctor as the concern is that he may become deehydrated.

He also has post nasal drip that gets worse at night. It disrupts his breathing. i was up half the night listening to his breathing.
