a. child can pass motion once in seven days or pass after every feed.
b. Pass green colour stools
c. white threads

is dangerous. How to identify dehydration
1. Once in 8 hours child should be active or take deep sleep
2. In a day must pass about 6 times urine
3. Eye should have tears
4. Mouth should have saliva.
