    Yeah--stained water. And diahrrea is better defined as frequency.

    Okay. Well I'm getting watery poos then at least 2-3 times a day. Can this be a sign of too much foremilk, or would they be watery and green?

    Green and frothy is usually used as an indicator of too much foremilk. This is a really good resource. http://www.drjaygordon.com/developme...ricks/poop.asp

    Okay, thank you. I am thinking that maybe this is some diarrhea caused by teething. He has been showing definite signs of teething for the past month and a half, and it has been very apparent as of late. This has been going on for about a week now. He's been having about 3 bowel movements a day though, is that enough to be considered diarrhea?

    IMO 3 poos a day for a 4 MO is perfectly normal. I was confused about the poo thing in the beginning too. I thought it was supposed to be more 'formed' because my LO's was more watery and orange/brown. Which a friend of mine told me was normal. HTH
