Is this a change: A lot of 4mo spit a lot & many poop that often. Babies lose a lot of body heat from their head so a warm head isn't particularly worrisome.Having a normal temperature is good, but doesn't rule out the early stage of a new illness. If this is a change in your babies pattern it points to some form of stress & may take a little longer to show clear signs.
