No 2 at least three times a day

Morning Doc

Please advise: My 10mth old has a No 2 at least three times a day, and everytime, it's 'sloppy'. Her stool is almost never firm. She eats a variety of foods from veggies, starch (pasta with sauce), protiesn (eggs - no milk, only formula milk - Infacare 2). I try keep her away from chips and sweet stuff. The last time she had cheese curls was about a month ago.

She drinks a lot of fluids - the purity baby juice. On the bottle it says don't dilute, however I do because it is a bit too sweet for her.
What can it be?

Another thing - she still has no teeth. I've gotten her into the routine of brushing her 'teeth' every morning and evening - so she's ready, but nothing. She does show signs of teething one day, but the next, nothing.

Her rather frequent and loose stools may well be due to the fruit juice. Stop this altogether and see if her stools improve.
