Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
The colour variation in infants is normal if it is not associated with mucus, blood, foul smellind and loose watery stool.
It is common in infants after the introduction of solid food and the colour will change to yellow as the age grows.
Nothing to worry as there is no loose stool or any constipation.
Hope I have answered your query.
