If it is a hernia then surgery is the only treatment. You should get him operated soon before he develops any complications.

Try to give variety of semi solid food to develop her taste but do not force to eat. food may be tried like daliya, khichadi, dal n chapati pieces, suji kheer, haluwa, mashed potato etc etc. Increase quntity and frequency gradually after she starts eating. continue breast feeding and top milk. Still if u have any query, please consult privately.

Your son is already in hospital so I can not make any comment. however, usually greenish yellow stool are small in quantity but may pass frequently and may be during feed. 4 months child be exclusive on breast feed. Stop if he is on top feed. Look for redness around anus. If it is present take care of it. I don't think of any role of Antibiotic. Otherwise Hospital doctors are best judge.

It is very important that the baby be seen by a good physician immediately. Fever is an important sign of illness and should never be ignored. The baby might need some blood tests too.
