Brief Answer:
Not related to vaccine and it's normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM. Can understand your concerns.

Green colour of stools is not related to vaccine in any way.

A small baby may sometimes pass green color stools because of less transit time of milk in intestine. Due to less transit time, bile is not fully reabsorbed, resulting in green stools.

You need to visit the doctor if stools is watery or foul smelling. Or if child is not feeding properly.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Teething starts around 6 months of age

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome once again.

Teething starts around 6 months of age. Now, according to the latest recommendations vitamin D drops needs to be given till 1 year of age for easy teething.

Vitamin D drops comes with name of D3 must drops, sunsip drops, calshine P drops (1 ml=400 IU. Give 1 ml once a day till 1 year of age.

Sometimes, child can pass foul smelling stools but if child is feeding well and stools are not watery then there is no need to worry.

I hope this will help you.
Take care.
