Q.

Teething

Hi doc my son of six months has a bit of a runny tummy. He goes out quite often. Is this part of the teething process? I am a bit concerned. He is eating well &  getting enough milk. I would also like to know when can I start giving him yoghurt as he is on purities at the moment?

Your baby's runny tummy is not is not due to him teething.It may be due to one of the Purity foods you are giving him. Wait until he is at least 8 months old before giving him the joghurt.
