Very Watery Stool Help

My baby is 1 week 1 day & yesterday & today his stool has been VERY watery. It's like a little bit of cottage cheese mixed with a LOT of water. He likes to poop when I'm taking his diaper off, so (this is gross sorry) when he poops it shoots out in gushes of water & fills up the whole diaper, sometimes I have to switch a diaper in the middle of it. I read in a book that if he has too much to eat then his stool would be watery, and he was taking 3 oz so i knocked it down to 2 1/2 oz yesterday afternoon and still the watery poop continues ... any help?

My baby does the same thing...my dh says she "pees sh**" because it's so watery, but she's bf and it's normal for her...we were worried at first, thought she had the flu or something..but not the case. I can't comment on formula fed babies?? Maybe call your ped.?

She might have a virus-my 3 month old is just getting over one. It is abnormal in a baby so young, and they wanted to see my baby asap because of it, so call your ped. You don't want him to get dehydrated. He is too young for that-their normal stools should be loose but not THAT loose. Let us know...
