my 5 month old son had a minor cold last week. After that we had gone for a trip where the weather was quite hot. There he didn't poop for a day and after our next day return he pooped like green colour of henna/mehendi. Next day his poop was normal and cold was also cured. Today he pooped twice and again of same green colour. What this could indicate? Please suggest remedies for the same.

If the potty is green in colour continously then it means baby is taking more of fore milk(watery milk which comes in the beginning its high in protein but low in fat) and less of hind milk (thick milk which comes at the end, high in fat and protein). It may lead to weight loss, so make sure you feed from one breast throughly and switch breast.
