Hi. Thanks for your query.
The colour of stools of a purely breast fed baby is bright yellow. However even if you have already given one or two formula feeds, the colour may change to green as the formula milk contains iron.Do not give plain water. If necessary, it should be filtered, boiled and cooled.If stools are associated with pus or foul smell, you should take your baby to your pediatrician
As for the cold
, try putting a drop of pure normal saline nasal drops( eg, nasivion
mini), 1 drop, 1 nostril
at a time to clear the block, and you may find the baby feeds and sleeps better.He may be tired due to disturbed sleep due to the nasal block.If your child continues to have poor feeding or develops fever
, kindly take him to the doctor.
Hope your baby gets well soon.
Take care. bye
