vacuum delivery

My 3 concerns Doc:

1. My son is 4mnths old and delivery was assisted by vacuum. I noticed that at the back left side of his head has a little knob. Could this be of the suction and will it go back to normal?

2. I also felt a little a gland on both sides at the bottom of his head?

3. The injection he got at the hospital when he was born... It has not healed yet and is on occasions red and -|- .........

4. His stool is green/yellow- formula that Im uisng is NAN HA.
Can I also change to from NANHA to normal NAN or will it uspset his stomach

Are there any reasons for concern regarding the above?

Many thanks

The bump on your son's head will diasppear.Did your son have any cradle cap as the small glands may come from this?The BCG immunisation can take several months to heal. This is normal. His stools are normal. Why is he on a low allergy formula such as NAN HA? If he is not an allergic baby then there is no need to use this formula and he can use NAN.
