[IMG]http://i48.tinypic.com/2mhbl3o.jpg[/IMG] My son is exactly three weeks old he has been congested and sneezing and coughing I'm not to worried about that I guess I bought saline drops and am going to try and use those. But for the past two days he's been constantly shitting. Like I'm changing his diaper every 30 minutes and each fart he's popping. I know breastfed babies normally have soft poop but now it's like this where the diaper looks like you spilt a drink on it which shows its runny. Ignore the red/pink look its diaper rash monkey butt ointment. But it's green now and really runny. He isn't having a fever so idk. My doctor had no appointments. He's peeing normal

Is he EBF? If so you might want to cut dairy out of your diet.

Green stools in a bf'd baby can be too much foremilk (the first watery milk) instead if the hindmilk.
Make sure you're not swapping breast too much during a feed so he gets a good amount of the fatty hindmilk
