Different stool pattern

Morning doctor

My son (18 months) had a very soft (but not watery) yellowish stool on Saturday after three normal stools for the day. Sunday his stomach was normal. Monday he had one soft stool again. Tuesday 2 normal stools. This morning he had a soft greenish stool.

I think he is teething (lower cuspids) by the way he chews on his dummy. He eats, drinks and sleeps as normal and he has no fever thus far.

Do you think this is due to teething or a matter of concern?

Thank you for your time.

Your son's stools are probably as a result of his teething. He seems to be well.

Can you maybe also explain why the different colours of the stools please? I suppose it is also due to what he eats, but is there any medical reasons for the change of colour?

Thank you once again.
