Your baby son's stools are normal for babies of this age. The bump at the back of his head is probably a small lymph gland which may have become slightly enlarged due to a scalp condition such as cradle cap.Sometimes no reason can be found to explain this gland being enlarged. There is usually no need for any concern and the gland disappears by itself with time.
