The test report seems to be normal. Your doctor would have also considered a stool examination. I would recommend showing this to a pediatric gastroenterologist. There is no way of knowing why it comes sometimes and goes away the other times. It is possible that your child may have some allergies to certain foods that he is consuming. Therefore showing it to a specialist would be advisable.
Slight straining with passing motion is nothing to be concerned about. Passing stool every alternate day is considered normal. Try to increase milk consumption. Give more fruit, veggie, oats as fiber content to improve the consistency of the stool.
There ideally shouldn't be. But more than 10 watery stools daily requires medical attention. This is to rule out dehydration. Your diet shouldn't be a huge concern for the smell of your child's stool. But please do bring this to the attention of your pediatrician.
Then it is ok no need to worry about pooping schedule. Eat with your kid, make it fun because with growing age and too much energy baby might want to play more than skip so it is ok don't worry
The consistency of the stool doesn't look too bad. Although as you rightfully pointed out it is hard. However, if your son doesn't have any struggle in passing the stool there is nothing to be concerned about. Try to increase breastmilk consumption.
If the poop is of a semi-solid consistency there is nothing to be concerned about. Babies might pass stool several times in a day based on what they eat. Even eating can result in the passing of stool. However, if you observe that your child is lethargic, has no interest in eating and also not very active check-in with a pediatrician.
Please check in with your doctor. Loss in appetite and also a decrease in urine production could indicate an infection, but without checking there is no way to know what your child is experiencing.
its seems like your baby is suffering from constipation , its doesn't look like normal poop for a 5 month old baby, you should ask your pediatrician about this
Is there a reason that your child is receiving albendazole every 15 days? Ideally, it is given one every six months if required. Giving several antibiotics can also result in pain and changes in stool pattern. Also, talk to your son and try to figure out exactly when he experiences pain. Is it related to the food that he is eating? Is it because of some event happening in his life? These simple things can help you analyze better what the underlying cause might be.
Green stools can be a sign of allergy with some food you r giving or it can also be a sign that your baby is suffering from cold
