Green runny stool in child, started teething. What could cause this?

My 4 month old since yesterday has had green, runny stools almost every hour to 2 hours. There are no signs of fever or anything out of the ordinary except for the constant runny diapers. Im nervous because i have 2 small dogs as well and my baby is just starting to roll on the floor and play. I have also felt her gumbs for teething , they do feel a little bumpy but nothing sharp feeling like a tooth is coming out. What could be wrong?

Thanks for your query.
Your child has been suffering from acute watery diarrhoea most likely caused by rotavirus.This type of diarrhoea is self limiting.So you need not to be very worried.
Continue breast feeding more frequently than usual.Feed oral rehydration solution( ORS ) according to weight after each purging. Stay alert for signs of dehydration like irritability, thirst,sunken eyes,skin pinch,fontanelle etc.If any sign of dehydration is seen ,please contact with your treating physician.

Best wishes..
