Really frequent pooing - 6m old - started weaning now back on bf

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar as am quite worried.
We started weaning my 6m DD about a month ago - we're doing BLW and just gave brocoli, carrot, cucumber, things like that. About 2.5 weeks ago after eating cucumber she started pooing a lot, so we stopped the weaning to give her tummy a chance to settle. So since then she's been only on breastmilk.

Since then she's still pooing a lot! Up to 8-9 times a day! Otherwise she seems fine in herself but that isn't normal, is it, if you're purely breastfeeding?

I am worried she has an infection. I did take her to the doc but they didn't really do anything, said it might be a virus and just to wait.

Anyone else had similar experiences?
Thanks! x

Does seem very excessive and after 2.5 weeks it should have settled. Would your GP send off a sample?

My GP always makes me feel like I am a nuisance, I don't like her attitude at all. She seemed to think it was nothing. Anyway, I just went back and saw another doctor, and they said she has an ear infection and have prescribed amoxycillin, so hopefully that will clear everything up!
