Baby teething?
Dear Doc / Anyone.

My four month old baby is very irritated by his gums/teeth. He usually had greenish bowel movements and only once about every three days, two days ago he started having frequent bowel movements which are bright yellow? Can this be the result of him teething? He is fine otherwise.

Thanks

We are usually not concerned about a change in bowel colour. The most important thing is that he is fine. Teething may have some effect on the bowelpattern.
