 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My son's stool colour is green. Otherwise the consistency seems fine, and he passes stool once a day. Is this okay? Should we give him some medication? He has started teething. Could this be the reason for the change in colour of his stools?

Megha (Baroda, India)

A: Teething has nothing to do with stools. If he is straining while opening his bowels and if the stools are hard then he is suffering from constipation. But the good thing is he is opening her bowels regularly. Just make sure he is drinking plenty of fluids and eating lots of vegetables and fruits, especially bananas. This will soften the stools. If the stools are not watery or smelly and do not contain any white mucous, then don't be bothered about the colour.
