My so is 6 months old. For the past 1-2 weeks, he has been having dark green loose stools 3-6 times a day. These stools coincided with when we started giving him tastes of food (he has not had a significant quantity of foods, just 1-3 bites per day). He also got his first 2 bottom teeth at 4 1/2 months, so he may be teething as well.
Apart from the strange diapers, he is acting 100% normal - happy and content, sleeping fine, plenty of wet diapers, eating great, a healthy 19 pounds, and no signs of illness.
Normally I would probably call our dr just to be sure everything is ok, but we just moved to a new country in East Africa and we do not yet have a dr that we trust. If he were very sick, i would bring him in anyway but my intuition is that he is ok because he is acting normally, Therefore, I am concerned about an overreaction and ordering tests and drugs that he doesn't need.
Has anyone had this happen before? Should i be concerned? Would you take him to the dr?
