Hi
If your baby is on exclusive breastfeeding then even 20times poop is normal. Is your baby fussy? I don't think doctor would have suggested antibiotics?

No my baby is not at all fussy,
He just feel relieved after passing stools and keep on passing few drops of stools all day

Antibiotics for new born? 10 12 per day is normal in new borns, what made you think it's loosies? Please change your paediatrician right away and take 2nd opinion. I know babies who does 20 times also.
