Q.

Veins on 5mths baby''s head

My son is 5 mths old and had a large vein running from the right of his head down to the eye. It used to pop-out when he cried and became very green but these days even if he is not upset it pops-out. Should i be worried? he is otherwise a very healthy and happy baby.

This is normal at this age and will become much less noticeable as your baby gets older.
