Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Loose motions or diarrhea is mostly caused by viral infection.

If there is associated blood or mucus in the stool or fever then we consider dysentry.

Yellow green color of the stool is of not much significance.
I request you to not to worry about that.
Monitor for the signs of dehydration.
They include
1. Decreased skin turgor
2. Increasing thirst.
3. Sunken eyes.
4. Irritability.
5. Drowsiness.
6. Decreasing passage of urine.

hope this helps
take care

Thanks for your query.
Diarrhea is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to subside.
Most important is to maintain hydration.
Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,give coconut water,lemonade,
Give lactobaccilus sachet for 2 to 3 days.
Watch for signs of dehydration like decreased urine output/lethargy/refusal of feeds and in case you find any get him evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
