My baby's pee count is normal but poop count is more than 8, 9 times. Sometimes it's watery and sometimes normal. Is it normal ? Is there any possibility for a 5 week baby to get diarrhoea ? Do I need to take him to pediatrician ?

yes it's normal for a newborn

An exclusively breast fed baby will pass water stools multiple times a day which is normal. You need to visit the doctor if there is mucus in the stools.
