A. It is ok. This doesn't necessarily mean any problem unless the stools are watery, or too hard, or has blood stains or the baby has a stomach pain or looks cranky or cries everytime he poops. In all these cases you should consult a doctor. Otherwise you need not worry.
A. Are u using diapers? If not it is good to use. Diapers are not harmful if used with appropriate care. Diapers give comfort and protection to the baby. Diapers also enable a peaceful sleep without disruption and uneasiness due to wetting. A baby who sleeps well will be a happy baby.
A. No. Don't give any instant foods for your baby. They will contain some amount of preservatives and chemicals added for cooking easily in less time. This is the time when u r introducing new foods to the baby and his tummy can be delicate. So better to give home made healthy foods like fruit purees or porridge or homemade cereals or vegetable purees.
A. 3.2 to 5.4 kg is the average weight range for this age group. She is well within the range. Usually this also depends on the baby's birth weight. Your baby should be peeing anywhere between six to ten times a day which means the baby is taking feeds properly. If not then make sure the baby is latching and taking feeds well or if ur milk supply is sufficient. Also there should be a gradual weight gain. Keep a check on these factors.
A. Babies talk around 18 months. They will be able to say simple words, point to objects and call their name. Every child is different and there could be early and late speakers. So u need not worry.

A continuous verbal conversation with ur baby will improve his vocabulary and encourage him to speak more.

A. Is she exclusively breastfed? It's completely ok for a breastfed baby to go without pooping for 7 days. Breastmilk is easily absorbed by the body and since that's the baby gets all her nutrition from it there is very little waste. As long as she doesn't cry or strain while pooping or is unusually fussy you don't have to worry.
